A 51-year old East Berlin man was taken by Life Star to Hartford Hospital Friday morning after being wounded in the lower left leg while deer hunting off Beckley Road in Berlin.

Police said the man was in a heavily wooded area on private property with his stepson and a friend. Police said they believe his stepson accidentally shot him.

The victim had a tourniquet on his leg for more than 20 minutes, officials said. The injury appears to be non-life threatening.

Crews from East Berlin, Berlin and South Kensington Fire Departments assisted Berlin police.
