Boy, 17, Charged With Manslaughter In Hunting Bow Death

November 17, 2003

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 Rochester.

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 later.

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.
