Monday, February 4, 2008

ARTHURSBURG — The man who was shot in the abdomen while hunting in LaGrange Sunday morning died late Sunday afternoon, the Dutchess County Sheriff's Office reported today.

Police identified the man as 50-year-old East Fishkill resident Ronald Cirillo. Police said the fatal wound to his abdomen was a result of an accidental discharge from his own shotgun.

At about 9:42 a.m. Sunday, the Sheriff's Office went to a wooded area off Emans Road for a 911 call of a person with a gunshot wound to the stomach. A sheriff's deputy and a state trooper found Cirillo about a mile off the roadway. He had been hunting with two other people, police said.

Cirillo was flown to Westchester Medical Center, where he died while undergoing emergency surgery.
