MIDLAND -- Midland County sheriff's deputies were investigating the
shooting death of a hunter.
Corey A. Welch died early Tuesday at Hurley Medical Center in Flint.
The 33-year-old Indianapolis, Ind., man suffered a gunshot wound to
the back about 5:30 p.m. Sunday, said Sheriff Jerry A. Nielsen.
Welch was hunting deer from a blind in Warren Township near Coleman.
Investigators believe a 26-year-old Coleman woman, who was hunting
from a blind east of Welch's location, fired the shot that struck Welch,
"She saw a deer and pulled up and shot at the deer," the sheriff
said. "Seconds later, she heard yelling. She located the victim and
rendered aid to him."
Mid-Michigan had not had a hunting-related shooting death since 2006,
when two hunters died of wounds that apparently were accidentally
self-inflicted, Saginaw News records show.
