Two men arrested in a shooting in St. Augusta this week are likely to make their first court appearances in Stearns County District Court Friday.

Their names have not been released yet. Authorities believe the suspects shot a 33 year-old man during a robbery attempt Wednesday morning at an address on 69th Avenue.

Eyewitnesses gave deputies a description of the suspects and their vehicle, and they were arrested in St. Joseph Township just minutes after the shooting.

The victim remains at St. Cloud Hospital with non life threatening injuries. Authorities have not released his name either.

Chief Deputy Bruce Bechtold says investigators on Thursday found the gun they believe was used in the shooting.
