KERNERSVILLE, N.C. — Deputies say a Kernersville man who was accidentally shot while hunting Monday has died.
Tommy Lee Clinard, 63, was found shot in a field near the 2300 block of Pisgah Church Road around 7 a.m. Monday, according to Chief Deputy Brad Stanley with the Sheriff’s Office.  The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.
Stanley said Clinard, who was hunting turkeys, was shot once by another hunter in the area.
The second hunter, whose identity has not been released, was not aware of the victim’s presence at the time, Stanley said.
Stanley said the shooter has been cooperating with the investigation, which is ongoing.  The North Carolina Wildlife authority is also conducting their own investigation, he said.
No other details have been provided.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call deputies at 727-2112.
