VT - Man shot and killed in hunting accident

Man dies in Milton hunting mishap

November 24, 2007

MILTON, Vt. --Police say a 43-year-old man shot and killed Friday appears to have been the victim of a hunting accident.

Milton Police Detective Paul Locke says David Jenkins died late Friday afternoon after being shot while hunting with two friends in woods about 4 miles north of the town center.

Friends say Jenkins, who was single, was a lifelong resident of Milton and was a school maintenance worker in neighboring Colchester.

They say he was an experienced and careful hunter who always told companions to be sure of their target before firing.

It was the first fatality of Vermont's 2007 deer season, which ends Sunday.
