ALBION, N.Y. -- A 17-year-old boy was charged Monday with
manslaughter in the death of a 16-year-old friend who was shot in the head
with an arrow.
The Orleans County Sheriff's Office on Monday charged
Jeremy D. Hucknall of Barre with one count of second-degree manslaughter in
the Nov. 9 death of Christopher McClary of Albion, 30 miles west of
McClary, Hucknall and two other friends were shooting
arrows from a hunting bow in a field. McClary ducked behind a junked car but
then stood up just as Hucknall fired an arrow toward the car, police said.
The arrow hit McClary, who was rushed to a nearby hospital
and then airlifted to Buffalo. He was pronounced dead about seven hours
Hucknall appeared in Barre Town Court Monday afternoon and
was released without bail to the custody of his father. He is scheduled to
appear in court again on Nov. 20.
