FOLEY — A 16-year-old Elk River boy shot himself in the foot this weekend while hunting in Benton County.
 
The boy was taken to St. Cloud Hospital and treated for injuries that Sheriff Brad Bennett said were not life-threatening.
 
The boy was hunting in Glendorado Township at about 3:15 p.m. Sunday when the trigger of his gun got caught on a loop on his hunting vest, according to Bennett. That caused the gun to discharge into his foot.
 
The boy, Brandon Rischmiller, was pheasant hunting at a preserve when the accident happened, Bennett said.
