It happened at Carver County Road 40 and Homestead Road.

The sheriff's office said people at a nearby home were shooting at targets and a motorcyclist was struck by a stray bullet. 

The motorcyclist was able to slow down enough and realize he had been shot. He was then taken to Hennepin County Medical Center and is in stable condition, the sheriff's office said Wednesday.

The sheriff's office said the incident underscores the importance of knowing what is beyond a target when target shooting.

Authorities didn't yet know whether any charges will be filed.
