TN: Man Dies In Hunting Accident

Nashville Man Dies In Hunting Accident

Posted on August 14, 2008

A Davidson County man died in an apparent hunting accident in Lawrence County this week.

The body of fifty-two year old Gary Wayne Smith of Brentwood Tennessee was found in a tree stand Tuesday night around 8:30pm. Smith had been hunting coyotes on a friends property, just off of the Old Florence - Pulaski Road.

Authorities say the rifle was found on the ground near the tree stand. Officers think Smith dropped the rifle and the weapon discharged when it hit the ground, striking Smith in the back and exiting through his chest.

Smith worked in the music industry in Nashville.
