Troopers release name of youth killed in hunting accident

Associated Press

KTVA Alaska State Troopers have released the name of the youth killed Saturday in a hunting accident near Quinhagak (QUINN'-uh-hawk). He was ten-year-old Carl Abalama.

Troopers say the boy was duck hunting with his uncle, 40-year-old Bob Cleveland, and his cousin, 16-year-old Richard Cleveland, when the accident occurred.

Troopers say birds took flight and Carl stood up to shoot. As he did so, he passed in front of Richard Cleveland just as the teen was firing.

Carl Abalama was shot in the back of the head. His uncle and cousin placed him in a sled behind a snowmobile and rushed him to the Quinhagak clinic, where he was pronounced dead.

Troopers say NO charges are expected in the death. Quinhagak is 71 miles southwest of Bethel.
