Police: Hunting accident kills man, 21

September 13, 2006

A former Christoval High School football star was killed Tuesday in what police described as a tragic hunting accident.

Justin David Lytle, 21, of Christoval, was sitting in the front seat of a golf cart near Christoval Road in southern San Angelo, according to police reports, when a flock of doves took flight from the underbrush.

One of his hunting partners, Wayne Hayner, 24, of Mertzon, sitting in the back seat of the cart, raised his shotgun and fired just as Lytle stood up to also take aim at the birds. Lytle was killed instantly.

"We're investigating the incident," said San Angelo police spokesman Lt. Curtis Milbourn, "though there's nothing that would make us believe it was anything but an accident."
