(KSNI) - A person was shot at a business in Fairfax, a small town about 20 miles southeast of Hutchinson.

The Renville County Sheriff's Office says they were called to a gas station and auto repair shop around 8 on Friday morning where a 55-year-old employee, Kenneth Eckstein, had been shot in the hand and face.

He was treated at the scene and flown to North Memorial Health in Robbinsdale for surgery. His current condition is unknown.

Deputies were told a 60-year-old suspect from Fairfax had been disarmed. Michael Klatt was taken into custody at the scene.

Klatt is being held in the Renville County Jail pending formal charges.
