St. Clair County sheriff says Devon Derouin was accidentally shot by hunter Thursday evening
Coyote hunter shoots, kills teen in brush
A 17-year-old Brockway Township teen was shot and killed Thursday in what appears to be a hunting accident.
St. Clair County Sheriff Tim Donnellon said Devon Derouin was scouting for deer on property in the 12000 block of Wilkes Road at about 7:30 p.m.
At the same time, three hunters had been given permission to hunt coyote on the same parcel of land. One of the hunters, a 24-year-old man from Port Huron Township, saw movement in brush at the base of a tree. Believing it was an animal, he fired one shot from a distance of about 150 yards.
That shot killed Derouin. He was hit by a 22-caliber bullet while sitting at the base of the tree.
