(AP) - Authorities are now calling the death of a 16-year-old hunter in northeastern Minnesota a suicide.

A member of Corwin M. Johnson's hunting party found him dead in his hunting stand near Aurora late Saturday afternoon.

The death initially was reported to authorities as an accidental shooting.

But the St. Louis County Sheriff's Office said Sunday, due to additional information it received, the death is no longer being investigated as a hunting accident and has been reclassified as a suicide.

The sheriff's office says the incident remains under investigation.
