A man was found Friday lying on state Highway 23 south of Granite Falls, covered in blood from a gunshot wound, and was taken to a Minneapolis hospital for treatment.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune identified the victim as Daniel L. Scheff, 30, and the suspects as brothers Derek M. Hexum, 19, of Gordon, Ga., and Devin D. Hexum, 21, of Balaton, Minn.

The pursuit ended when a Minnesota State Patrol trooper used a “pursuit intervention technique” to stop the vehicle about a half-mile from the South Dakota line in Lincoln County.
