Larry LeBlanc, 49, was shot during a hunting accident off Blue Run Road Sunday morning.

Webster Parish Sheriff Gary Sexton said LeBlanc and his son, Alan LeBlanc were hunting the same pipeline when a deer walked out between them.

Larry LeBlanc was in the truck and shot at the deer. Alan LeBlanc was farther down the pipeline and also shot.

The distance between the two remains under investigation.

The bullet from Alan LeBlanc’s .300-caliber Magnum rifle traveled through the truck door, Larry LeBlanc’s right leg and entered the left leg, Sexton said.

At 6:30 a.m., the sheriff’s office received a 911 call from Alan LeBlanc about the accident.

Larry LeBlanc was transported to Minden Medical Center and later transported to LSU Health Sciences Center with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

This morning, LeBlanc remained in ICU and was listed in fair, but stable condition.

The incident has been ruled accidental, and no criminal charges will be pursued.
