FATHER KILLS 14-YEAR OLD SON IN HUNTING ACCIDENT

By Louis Short / Sun-Times Staff

6 January 2004

GREERS FERRY - A father-son hunting trip turned to tragedy early Sunday when Brady Galloway, 14, of Greers Ferry was accidentally shot after being mistaken for a deer.

The boy and his father, Gary Lynn Galloway, 47, were hunting on private property near Greers Ferry when the accident occurred, according to Keith Stephens, Assistant Chief of Communications with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.

He said the two had split up after arriving at the nearest deer stand, and neither was wearing hunter orange.

Brady was shot through his hip, causing extensive bleeding, and because of the remoteness of the area, rescue efforts were unsuccessful.

The shooting is still under investigation, according to Stephens.

Fatal hunting accidents in the state are down from last year, according to Stephens. "We've had three this year compared to five last year," he said.

"Everyone needs to make sure they know what they're shooting at," he cautioned.
