They drove about one mile west of Park Rapids and stopped on a gravel road. He alleges Grant then pulled out a semi-automatic pistol and struck him across the forehead and nose with the pistol. Grant then pointed the gun at the man. He grabbed the gun and turned it away from him and the gun went off and shot a bullet through the windshield, according to the complaint. The victim set the pistol down on the floorboard, got out and ran towards a stand of trees when he heard two shots. He looked back toward the vehicle and saw Grant standing there. He ran into the woods and hid from Grant, who got into the vehicle and drove away.”
