Authorities were called to the Minnesota Renaissance Festival in Shakopee on Wednesday on a report that someone had been shot.

The Scott County Sheriff’s Office was called around 10 p.m. When they arrived, they found a man with a gunshot wound to the neck. He was airlifted to the Hennepin County Medical Center in unknown condition.

Scott County deputies can’t say if the victim was shot at the festival, but he was found there.

Shortly after the victim was found, the suspect’s car was stopped on Highway 169 just south of Shakopee, and the suspect was arrested.

The incident is still under investigation.
