KS: Teenager injured in hunting accident

December 5, 2012

From Graphic-Online.com

A father accidentally shot his 16-year-old son Saturday afternoon in Hillsdale during a hunting trip.
Preliminary investigation showed that a father and his 16-year-old son from Roeland Park were on a hunting trip in the area of Gardner and Moonlight roads in Miami County. The accidental shooting occurred when the father exited their vehicle and reached in to retrieve a hunting rifle from behind the seat.
As he retrieved the rifle, it discharged, causing a bullet to strike the son’s rifle scope that was next to him. Bullet fragments from the round then entered the son’s left hand and abdominal area, according to the release.
