A 17-year-old from Jamestown is in critical condition at a Youngstown, Ohio, hospital after he was shot during a hunting accident.

State police in Mercer County are investigating the shooting of the unidentified teen who was shot in the neck by his hunting partner early Saturday morning.

Police were not sure what the teens were hunting, but the state Game Commission said duck season began Saturday.

Around 7 a.m., police said the two were hunting in Greene Township near State Line Road when the incident occurred. Police said the victim was flown to St. Elizabeth Medical Center in Youngstown.
