A suspect in an early Friday morning shooting in Ten Lake Township was arrested without incident Friday evening, the Beltrami County Sheriff's Office said.

William Earl "Odie" Morris was arrested about 5:09 p.m. after a 12-hour search for him, Sheriff Phil Hodapp said in a statement.

Hodapp had earlier Friday asked the public's help in locating Morris, who he labeled as a suspect in a shooting incident in a Ten Lake Township home.

Hodapp had said Morris, 19, may be armed and should be considered dangerous.

The victim of the shooting was transported to North Country Regional Hospital. His condition was unknown as of Friday afternoon. His identity will be released after family members have been contacted.
