It is unclear where the shot came from.

Schrode later wrote a Facebook post describing the incident in detail.

"I was shot at pointblank range, dozens were maced and pepper sprayed in the face, hundreds faced freezing waters," Schode wrote. "There were no arrests or deaths and I will be okay physically, but the safety and wellbeing of many peoples and lands remain in danger, for present and future generations."

Hundreds of clergy members from various faiths joined the protests in Standing Rock on Thursday.
