14-Year-Old Fatally Shot
(State College, Pa.-AP, Dec. 1, 2003 10:43 PM) _
Authorities say at least two people -- including one from Connecticut --
were killed today on the first day of Pennsylvania's two-week rifle-hunting
Authorities in Potter County say 14-year-old Taylor
Cavallaro from Southbury was fatally shot while walking with family members
in neighboring Cameron County, about 110 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.
Potter County Coroner Kevin Dusenbury Senior says Cavallaro died when a gun
his 20-year-old brother was carrying accidentally fired, hitting the teen.
Also today, 50-year-old Melvin Hughes, of Finleyville,
died of an apparent heart attack.
Authorities say another hunter saw Hughes wave before he
appeared to lie down in a field south of Pittsburgh. The hunter walked to
where he last saw Hughes about 15 minutes later and found him unconscious.
