PRINEVILLE, Ore. (AP) — A Molalla man was shot and killed by a family member while hunting in the Ochoco National Forest, Crook County authorities said.

The shooting appeared to be an accident, according to the district attorney's office.

The identities of the hunters had not been released as of Thursday night. The incident happened on Prairie Hill, about 30 miles east of Prineville, in a remote area of the Ochoco Mountains. About two hours elapsed before officers reached the scene, authorities said.

The shooting is the second hunting accident in the Ochoco National Forest since the season began. In the first incident, 23-year-old Sean Michael Vaughan of Prineville was accidentally shot in the abdomen by another hunter and remains in serious condition at St. Charles Medical Center-Bend.
