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.
