BURNETT COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - Authorities in northwest Wisconsin said a man was shot with his own weapon, after he confronted his ex-girlfriend and her lover at a cabin in Burnett County.
Sheriff's deputies said they found 53-year-old Ronald Aune at a hospital in Wyoming Minnesota, where he was still being treated at last word for a gunshot wound. Aune is from Forest Lake Minnesota.
Burnett County prosecutors said Aune walked entered the cabin last Saturday night and yelled for Christine Johnson, who was hiding under a bed. After he couldn't find her, officers said he told her boyfriend Edwin Frank to get into Aune's truck.
Prosecutors said Johnson walked out of the cabin, distracted the two men, and grabbed the gun -- and it fired during a struggle. Frank reportedly hid the weapon in the cabin and called 911.
When he's extradited to Wisconsin, Aune will face seven criminal charges that include kidnapping, false imprisonment, reckless endangerment, trespassing, and disorderly conduct.
