NJ - hunter shoots himself

Monday, January 28, 2008 A man hunting with three friends in Warren County suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his left hand, according to Warren Township and Washington Borough police.

The injured man, identified as Loia Cosimo, 62, of Watchung, Somerset County, first came to the attention of police who responded Saturday to a 9:10 a.m. call about a wounded individual in the A&P shopping center parking lot on Route 31 south, police said.

Cosimo, along with three adult friends, were small game hunting off Shurts Road, in Washington Township, when Cosimo apparently shot and wounded himself with a 12-gauge semi-automatic shotgun he was carrying, police said.

Cosimo was taken to Morristown Memorial Hospital for treatment.

Police said the incident has been turned over to the state Department of Environmental Protection's Division of Fish and Wild Life for investigation.
