A 52-year-old Louisiana man has been charged after allegedly shooting his girlfriend in Sawyer County.

Kerry Stevenson, 52, is charged with felony possession of a firearm and reckless injury with a handgun, according to the Sawyer County Sheriff's Office. He is being held on a $1 million cash bond.

Around 1:40 on Saturday morning, authorities received a call from a subject at Ray Jay's Restaurant in Hayward, saying the suspect was at the restaurant and had blood on him. The caller said the man had been with his girlfriend earlier and was afraid something might have happened to her.

After initial investigation, authorities said the suspect had discharged a handgun in or near his truck and that his girlfriend, a 48-year-old from New York, was shot. She was located and brought to an area hospital with a gunshot to her head.

The victim is in critical condition.
