PA: Youth, 16, shot, wounded in Medford hunting accident

May 6, 2007

MEDFORD — A Medford man who thought he was shooting a turkey accidentally shot a 16-year-old youth yesterday, police said.

The youth, whose name was not released, was not seriously injured, according to police.

Warren W. Post, 44, of Mount Holly Road was hunting in the Medford Wildlife Management Area on Ark Road when he fired a shotgun just before 7 a.m., police said. The shot hit a Mount Holly teenager, who was hunting in the same area.

The birdshot wounded the youth in the head, neck, torso and right arm, police said. Paramedics transported the youth to Cooper University Hospital in Camden. The wounds were superficial, and the youth was released yesterday, police said.

The Medford Police Criminal Investigations Bureau and the state Department of Environmental Protection's Division of Fish and Wildlife are investigating.
