The man accused of shooting and wounding two people at the Cook County courthouse in Grand Marais, Minn., last week is expected to be charged Monday.
The victims remained hospitalized Sunday at Essential Health-St. Mary's Medical Center in Duluth. Cook County Attorney Tim Scannell and Gregory Thompson were taken there after Thursday's gunfire. Daniel Schlienz, 42, allegedly fired on Scannell and Thompson, a witness against him in a criminal sexual conduct trial in which he had just been found guilty.
The hospital said that Scannell remained in fair condition and that Thompson was in good condition.
Scannell was shot three times, twice in the abdomen and once in the groin. Thompson was shot twice in the leg and once in the groin.
Family members said Schlienz was upset over having to go to jail.
