ONAMIA, Minn. (AP) Authorities say surveillance video from the Mille Lacs Grand Casino helped track down two people they believe were involved in a shooting in the parking lot.

Mille Lacs County Sheriff Brent Lindgren says a 19-year-old Isle man was shot in the back in the casino's front lot in Onamia Thursday. He was treated and released from a local hospital.

Officials say the video identified the suspects' truck which was later spotted at a gas station in Garrison. The truck sped away and at least ten agencies were involved in tracking it down, including aerial help from the state Department of Natural Resources.

A 23-year-old man and a 21-year-old woman, both from Onamia, were later arrested and are in the Mille Lacs County Jail.
