A fund has been established to help two Jewell County sheriff deputies who were shot on duty last week.
Authorities say the deputies were shot by a 40-year-old man who walked into the sheriff's office, asked to see a deputy and opened fire.
The man, Jason Whitson of Mankato, later shot and killed himself after leading law enforcement on a chase into Ottawa County. A motive for the shooting has not been released.
The Jewell County Sheriff's Office said both deputies will make a ``long but full recovery.''
The agency says an account has been established to help cover the deputies' expenses. Donations can be sent to the State Exchange Bank in Mankato.
