Oconee County Man Killed in Hunting Accident

(Walhalla-AP) August 28, 2006 - A West Union man has died in an apparent hunting accident in Oconee County.

Coroner Karl Addis says 65-year-old John Anthony Binder was found next to a fence Sunday afternoon.

Authorities think Binder died as he tried to move his 28-gauge shotgun from one side of a fence to the other at a private hunting club.

Addis says officials think Binder had been training his dog and was hunting quail before he died. Addis says one shell had been fired from the right chamber of the gun.

Binder suffered a single gunshot wound to the chest.

The death has been ruled an accident.
