- A well-known Laurel business-owner "doing what he loved, where he loved to do it" was killed during a reported hunting accident Tuesday.

A 55-year-old hunter was with his son on family land near Heidelberg Tuesday morning when the accident occurred. Early reports show a gun discharged with the bullet striking the father's chest. The accident, which occurred around 10 a.m., was still under investigation Tuesday afternoon.
According to Jasper County Coroner Randy Graham, the accident occurred near Highway 588 in Jasper County. He said the incident is under investigation by the Miss. Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks, a typical move any time an accident causes a fatality.
