DOVER, Minn. (KTTC) -- A Winona County man is being charged in a disturbance where he was shot and wounded by an Olmsted County sheriff's deputy on Christmas eve.

Joshua Patrick Pagel, 27, is facing a charge of felony domestic assault after he allegedly assaulted his grandmother in St. Charles, according to the Olmsted County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies found Pagel hiding under a camper in Dover. He allegedly charged at Olmsted County Sgt. Mike Morrow and Deputy Hiram Jobes. Sgt. Morrow fired a nonlethal round from a shotgun and struck Pagel, according to the Olmsted County Sheriff's Office. Pagel continued to charge and Sgt. Morrow discharged a second round, striking Pagel.
