Mercury News Staff Report

A 38-year-old Soquel man died Monday of a gunshot wound suffered while hunting near the Forest of Nisene Marks Park in Aptos, the Santa Cruz County Sheriff-Coroner's Office reported.

"Name withheld at the request of family" and two companions were legally hunting feral pigs on private property, according to the sheriff. About 8:30 a.m., emergency dispatchers received a report of a gunshot accident. Details about who fired the fatal shot were not available late Monday.

Emergency personnel took "Name withheld at the request of family" to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Sheriff's and coroner's detectives, who are investigating the incident as an accident, would not release the names of "Name withheld at the request of family" companions.
