ONAMIA, Minn. - 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.

The Brainerd Dispatch ( says 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.
