Man accidentally shot while hunting in Hartford

By GM Today Staff November 24, 2008

HARTFORD - A 61-year-old Gulfport, Mississippi man was shot in the leg while deer hunting in the Town of Hartford Sunday.

At about 1:27 p.m., the Washington County Sheriff's Department learned of the incident. Deputies and Department of Natural Resources game wardens investigated the shot.

A group of 16 hunters was conducting a deer drive, when one of the group fired a shot that hit Roger B. Brokaw. The slug bounced off the ground before hitting Brokaw. Investigators tracked the path of the slug through an area of thick brush to find out who fired the shot.
