LARUE -- A Prospect teen is in the intensive care unit at a Columbus hospital after he was accidentally shot in the face in a hunting accident near LaRue Sunday.

Joshua Ware, 16, Prospect, was listed in serious condition at Grant Hospital at 7 a.m. today. He was shot by another teenager he was hunting with, but the sheriff's office would not release the name of the other hunter.

Marion County Sheriff Tim Bailey said Ware was shot in the face just below the eye with a .22 rifle shortly before noon Sunday in the 2500 block of Fairview Road southwest of LaRue.

Bailey said several teenagers from Elgin High School had agreed to hold a squirrel hunt on the property and each had put money in a pot, with the first one back with a squirrel to get the pot. They were holding the hunt in several fields in the area.

In addition to Ware, a 15-year-old teen, 16-year-old and 17-year old were among those participating in the field where Ware was injured.

Ware was transported to Marion General Hospital and then transported to Grant Hospital.

Four officers and one investigator from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources responded to the accident. They were assisted in the investigation by the Marion County Sheriff's Office.

Ware, a junior at Elgin High School, is the son of Troy and Lynda Ware, Prospect.
