Fatal shooting appears to be hunting accident

PEMBROKE - A 48-year-old Pembroke man died Friday in what authorities suspect was a hunting accident.

The Genesee County Sheriff's Office said a preliminary investigation indicates that the victim, John E. Stocking, was hunting pheasants with a shotgun in Darien Lake State Park when the incident occurred at about 3 p.m.

A call was made to Genesee County 911 indicating someone had suffered a gunshot wound, and the Sheriff's Office and several emergency crews responded.

Stocking was located in a field between Sumner Road and Route 20 by members of the Darien Fire Department. The investigation is continuing.
