(KNSI) - A day after getting an arrow pulled out of his arm, a Stearns County deputy stopped by the sheriff's office to say hi to his colleagues and to let them know he's going to be okay.

Deputy Paul Orvis was shot by a suspect with a compound bow in Sauk Centre on Thursday.

The deputy could be heard calmly saying on the police radio that he had an arrow stuck in his left forearm.

On Friday morning, the sheriff's office sent out a picture of the deputy stopping by the sheriff's office, along with a caption saying he hopes to be back to work in the near future.

Sheriff Don Gudmundson visited Orvis in the hospital on Thursday and praised the police response to the incident.

The suspect, who hasn't been identified yet, was shot three times.

He's expected to be charged on Monday.
