13-YEAR-OLD SHOT IN FACE IN HUNTING ACCIDENT

17 Aug 2004

PARAGON, Ind. A 13-year-old boy who was shot in the face and neck by a hunter who thought he was an animal was in stable condition in an Indianapolis hospital.

The boy was hunting on Sunday with 19-year-old Joshua DePhue and two other boys.

Conservation officers say DePhue fired a shotgun and hit the Ellettsville boy, whose name was not released. Officials say the boy suffered 28 buckshot wounds to his face, neck and arms.

The Paragon Fire Department took the boy to the Morgan County Hospital, and he was later transferred to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis, where he was in stable condition Monday night.

No updated condition was available early Tuesday because of patient privacy rules.
