Multiple news outlets are now reporting that Maddy Montanye of Braham has made it through surgery to remove the .22 caliber bullet and parts of her skull in hopes of relieving pressure on her brain.  Montanye’s grandmother told KSTP that Maddy is in a medically induced coma, and remains in critical condition.

Pine County Sheriff Robin Cole and I had an extensive interview on this situation last Friday, and you can hear that audio right here.

Sheriff Cole said Maddy’s dad,  Jesse Montanye, was doing target practice outside the family’s home Thursday night when the his pistol jammed up. The father then brought the gun inside to fix it , when it fired across the room, hitting his daughter in the head.
