MINDEN - A Webster Parish man was hospitalized Sunday after being accidentally shot during a deer hunting outing with his son, Webster Sheriff Gary Sexton said.

The hunting accident is the second in three days, both involving fathers and sons, in the region.

Thursday, James Gray IV, 78, of Grand Cane died while hunting with a muzzleloader on family land in DeSoto Parish. His son James Gray III shot at a deer standing in a pipeline clearing but missed. He was unaware his father had moved from his deer stand and was standing about 100 yards away.

Sunday’s shooting on Blue Run Road in Webster also happened in a pipeline clearing, Sexton said.

Larry Allen LaBlanc, 49, was sitting in his pickup when his son Allen LaBlanc, age not immediately available, fired down an open pipeline. The bullet went through the truck door, struck Larry LaBlanc in one leg then exited and lodged in the second leg.

Larry LaBlanc was flown to LSU Hospital in Shreveport for treatment.

“No charges will be filed. It was an accidental shooting,” Sexton said.
