Victim identified as Thomasville man
Friday, December 26, 2008

A 62-year-old North Carolina man was killed in a hunting incident Friday morning in Patrick County.

John Rosenbaum Sr.of Thomasville died at the scene of the accident in the Spencer area of Patrick County, according to Julia Dixon and Karl Martin, both of the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries.

“It appears he died of an accidental self-inflicted gunshot” wound that occurred as he was getting ready to hunt, Dixon said.

Martin said the victim died instantly from the wound inflicted by a muzzle loaded rifle. Rosenbaum was about to go hunting with his son, Martin said, when the accident occurred where they had parked a vehicle and a four-wheeler.

Dixon said the accident occurred at 6:45 a.m. Friday between Stella and Critz.
