No charge yet in fatal hunting accident

November 7, 2010

From Boston.com

The Maine Warden Service yesterday was investigating the fatal shooting of a hunter.

Wardens said Peter Kolofsky, 46, of Sebago was wearing hunter orange when he was shot Saturday afternoon. He died at the scene.

Officials identify the person who shot Kolofsky as William Briggs, 61, of Windham. Both men were deer hunting, but they were not hunting in the same parties.

No summonses or charges had been filed, as the investigation continued.

A New Hampshire man was in critical condition after being shot in the stomach the day before in Casco. And in Oxford, a hunter was shot in the lower leg by a friend.
