OH - Hunter struck by bullet

Hunting accident

Special to The Review

WEST POINT — A Lisbon man was injured Saturday morning after being struck by a bullet in a hunting accident.

Dave Freeman, 59, of Johnson Road, was struck by what witnesses reported as a ricochet slug while he was hunting near the rear of Mundy’s Tree Farm in West Point, according to a sheriff’s report.

Deputies received the call at 9:48 a.m., and arrived to find Freeman sitting against a tree talking. Freeman was reportedly hunting with five other hunters when they fired on a deer. Those present reported that one of their shots likely ricocheted.

Freeman was transported by a Stat Medivac helicopter to a local hospital. The investigation was handed over to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR). No charges were filed from the incident.
