VA - Hunting accident being investigated

The Department of Game and Inland Fisheries is investigating a hunting accident that occurred in Culpeper County Thursday morning.

Sgt. Phillip Parrish said a man was shot around 9:10 a.m. with several shotgun pellets on one side of his body. The injuries were not expected to be life threatening. Parrish was not sure if the victim was still in the hospital. He said information on the accident was scarce because the game warden investigating the case was out in the field and unreachable at press time.

More than two people, believed to be from out of state, were involved in the hunting party.

Parrish says charges could be pending.
