FELTON, Pa. - A woman driving home from work on the first day of
deer hunting season was shot after the bullet pierced the door of
her car, authorities said.
Janet Wilhelm told her neighbor Robert Snyder that she first thought
a stone hit her car when she heard a noise while driving Monday afternoon,
but realized she had been shot after driving about 150 feet. Wilhelm
was admitted to York Hospital, where she was listed in serious condition
Pennsylvania Game Commission conservation officer Guy Hansen, who
has held that job 14 years, said he had never before investigated
a driver being shot during hunting season.
Hansen called the shooting a "hunting-related shooting incident." He
added, "I did not say it was an accident," but would
not say if he knew who shot Wilhelm.
