A 56-year-old Anderson County man was shot and later died from injuries sustained an accidental hunting incident Sunday in the county.
Anderson County Sheriff's Office Deputy Don Myers and Corporal Gerald Kerr were dispatched to the 1500 block of FM 1137 in reference to a reported accidental shooting at 10 p.m. Sunday, according to ACSO Chief Deputy Troy Black.
“Upon arrival, deputies were advised that the victim and the shooter were hunting hogs. The shooter fired his rifle at what he thought was a hog, striking the victim,” Black said.
Paramedics responded and worked with the victim until he was transported to Palestine Regional Medical Center, where he later died.
