Greeneville man dies in hunting accident

A Greeneville man died Saturday morning in an apparent hunting accident in South Greene County, authorities said.

Larry Broyles, 49, was hunting with his son in woods behind Parrish Drive, Detective Capt. John Huffine of the Greene County Sheriff’s Department said this morning.

Huffine said Broyles’ son was hunting some distance away and heard a gunshot but didn’t respond immediately.

"He probably figured it was his father shooting at something," Huffine said.

About 20 minutes later the son found Broyles lying in the woods with a single gunshot wound to the chest. Huffine said investigators believe Broyles dropped the rifle, which discharged when a branch snagged the trigger.
