Father kills son in hunting accident

Updated: May 5, 2008 09:08 PM

LOUISVILLE (WAVE) -- A hunting outing Sunday ended tragically for a Kentuckiana father who accidently killed his son.

It happened in eastern Oldham County when the man and his 14-year old son were out turkey hunting. The two had been out for about 30 minutes and had separated.

Officer Matt Cornell of the Oldham County Police tells WAVE 3 the father was standing on a ridge when he noticed movement on another ridge. He fired his shotgun and when he went to check it out, he found his son dead. The boy was killed instantly.

The identities of the father and son have not been released. Oldham County Police are expected to release more information about the accident on Tuesday.
