(ABC 6 News) - According to the Mower County Sheriff's Department, 62-year-old Daniel Peterson and 27-year-old Robert Peterson were charged Friday afternoon in connection with the shooting victim who made her way into Mayo Clinic Health Systems in Austin on Thursday.

As we reported on Thursday, the hospital went into lockdown as a precaution. Both men were arrested later in the day and are currently being held at the Mower County Jail.

Mower County Sheriff Terese Amazi says the victim had been shot in the face, but was coherent. She says the shooting was not accident and at last report, the victim was listed in critical condition.
