SCOTLAND, Ark. (AP) - A Conway man was killed in a weekend hunting accident in the Ozark National Forest, a detective says.

Jeffrey Brown, 36, was hunting north of Scotland when he was shot by his friend, Dale Gifford, 45, of Springfield, Detective Todd Bonds of the Van Buren County Sheriff's Office says.

The two men and Brown's 12-year-old daughter were squirrel hunting Saturday in the Gulf Mountain Wildlife Area. Gifford was driving along a road when he saw some hogs and got out and fired at them with buckshot, Bonds said. He accidentally struck Brown, who was in the woods more than 40 yards away.

"It was a tragic accident," Bonds said. "I hate that it happened to both families." The sheriff's office does not plan to charge anyone.
