(ABC 6 News) - One person has been taken into custody after a reported shooting incident near Utica Sunday night.

According to the Winona County Sheriff's Office, 31-year-old Justin Hahn has been taken into custody and is facing a possible charge of 2nd-Degree Assault.


The sheriff's office said around 10:30 Sunday night deputies were called to a house in the area of Sandstone Drive and Burt Road for a report of a man shooting a gun.

The caller told dispatch that a man and woman who had been at the home fled into a nearby field and that the woman may have a head injury.

Authorities were able to locate the woman and it was determined she had superficial injuries from a car window being smashed out and the glass hitting her head.

A Minnesota State Patrol helicopter was called in to search for a 2nd woman that had reportedly left the scene. 

Around 2 a.m. deputies made contact with that woman after she called the Law Enforcement Center to report that she had gone to a nearby home.

Investigators obtained search warrants for a home on Sandstone Drive along with two vehicles.  The sheriff's office said several firearms and spent shell casings were collected from the scene.

Investigators said they believe Hahn had fired several shots from various guns and had also pointed a handgun at the woman who sustained the cuts to her head.

He's been referred to the Winona County Attorney's Office for charges.
