Red Wing boy apparently took his own life while on hunting trip

MAIDEN ROCK, Wis.  -  A 14-year-old Red Wing boy died Sunday of a gunshot wound -- apparently taking his own life -- while hunting in rural Maiden Rock, according to Pierce County authorities.

Ambulance services were dispatched Sunday afternoon to a report of an injured hunter across the border in Wisconsin on an 8-acre parcel of land. Other hunting party members led first-responders to Logan Hinrichs, who was dead at the scene.

A sheriff's investigator and the medical examiner were called. Subsequent investigation indicates the boy took his own life, according to Chief Deputy Jason Matthys.

Hinrichs was an eighth-grader at Red Wing High School. Supt. Karsten Anderson sent out an alert Monday morning saying the district was implementing its crisis management plan including counselors "to provide as much support as possible during this difficult time."

Wisconsin concluded a four-day firearm antlerless deer hunt Sunday.
