SC: Man shot when another hunter's weapon accidentally discharges

October 15, 2013

From The TandD.com

A Lexington County man was shot during a hunting trip Friday.
Part of a party of at least five hunters, the 51-year-old man suffered a gunshot wound to the upper thigh when a hunting partner’s weapon discharged.
Deputies made contact with the party in a Neeses parking lot about 8 p.m.

The group said they had been hunting on some land in Norway. The man was bleeding heavily in spite of a tourniquet the group had bound around his leg.
The victim said they had ended their hunt and everyone was unloading their weapons of ammunition. However, when a 24-year-old woman was trying to clear her weapon, it went off, striking the victim in the thigh.
The 25-06 caliber rifle and investigative material will be turned over to the Department of Natural Resources for a final determination in the case.
