Huguenot - A 17-year-old boy was shot in the back during a hunting trip with friends yesterday.

The teen was shot with a .30-caliber rifle while in a green GMC pickup truck with three friends. It was not made clear by police where the teens were headed at the time of the shooting. The shooting occurred near Foss Lane in Huguenot in the Town of Deerpark.

The unidentified teen was flown to Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla following the early afternoon incident.

At the scene, investigators collected clothing and other belongings from the truck. One investigator held up an army fatigue jacket with a bullet hole through its cloth.

One of the friends hid his face in the seat of a police vehicle as he was driven away for questioning.

The others are also being questioned by police.

This is the second hunting-related shooting in Deerpark in just over a year.
