County Attorney Asked to Review Arrow Death 25 Oct 12

Chaska police have asked the Carver County prosecutor to review the death of a 16-year-old boy who was shot in the head with an arrow.

Reports indicate authorities believe that there is no indication of intent to cause Spencer Swanson’s death. But police say their investigation does not support the version told by the teenager who shot the arrow.

Swanson was riding a bicycle near his home on October 13th when an arrow shot by a friend struck him in the head.

Swanson died died two days later at Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis.
