14-year-old shot in hunting accident

A teen was taken to the hospital Sunday afternoon following a shooting police believe to be accidental.

According to Deputy Matt Budreau of the Tippecanoe County Sheriff's Office, emergency personnel responded to 4838 County Road 375 West at 4:01 p.m., after receiving a call of a hunting accident and accidental shooting.

Upon arrival, police discovered a 14-year-old male with a single gunshot wound to the abdomen.

Budreau said the names of the individuals involved were being withheld pending notification of family members.

The victim was taken to Home Hospital for treatment.

Budreau said further investigation showed that the discharge of a hunting rifle was accidental and no foul play was suspected.

The condition of the teen could not be ascertained Sunday night.

Police continue to investigate the incident.
