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.
