NEWARK, N.J. (AP) _ A North Brunswick man was shot by a fellow
member of his gun club while hunting deer in a forest in southern
Middlesex County, police said.
William Hadzimichalis, 24, was hunting with members of the Old
Yorke gun club along Longstreet Road in Monroe Township when a shotgun
pellet from another member's gun struck him in the right shoulder,
police said. The incident happened just before 11 a.m. Saturday.
Hadzimichalis was treated at the scene by paramedics, then
airlifted to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick
where he was listed in stable condition Saturday night.
Authorities said no charges have been filed against the person who
shot Hadzimichalis, and the person's name was not released, but an
investigation is ongoing.
