VA: Man Killed in Louisa Hunting Accident

Man Killed in Louisa Hunting Accident

January 15, 2011

A Mineral man has been killed in what authorities are calling a hunting accident late Saturday afternoon.

A spokeswoman for the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries says 49-year-old Timothy Kevin Hall was shot in the head while hunting in Louisa County. Hall was hunting with two others and was about 150 feet away when a deer ran between them. The two other hunters fired at the deer and Hall was hit with a single-pellet of buckshot in the temple.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Department of Game and Inland Fisheries is investigating. The investigation likely will take several days, any information will then be turned over to the Louisa Commonwealth's Attorney who will decide whether to file charges.

Saturday was the last day of general firearms season for deer.
