Americus man dies in hunting accident

Associated Press - December 16, 2007 2:14 PM ET

AMERICUS, Kan. (AP) - Lyon County officers are investigating the death of a 19-year-old Americus man who was shot while hunting.

Beau Arndt died early yesterday when he and a friend were hunting fowl on property in northwest Lyon County.

Arndt graduated from Northern Heights High School in May.

Lyon County sheriff's authorities are trying to locate a vehicle of interest in the shooting. The late-1970s Ford pickup with a red cab has Shawnee County license plates.

Early, unconfirmed reports from witnesses said Arndt may have been hit by shots from the truck, although Lyon County authorities are calling the shooting an accident.
