ROSEBURG MAN SHOT IN HUNTING ACCIDENT

October 11, 2004

STEAMBOAT: A Roseburg man is in stable condition at a Eugene hospital after he was accidentally shot by a friend while hunting near Steamboat on Friday.

Tyrell C. McCool, 20, was driving a vehicle about 10 miles outside of Steamboat with three other hunters when a quail flew across the road around 9:40 a.m., according to the Douglas County Sheriff's Office.

McCool stopped the vehicle so they could pursue the bird, and a passenger in the back, 20-year-old Rodger Akins of Roseburg, started to hand forward a 20-gauge shotgun. As he did, the gun fired, hitting McCool in the upper left shoulder.

The hunters drove McCool down the mountain and called for help. He was airlifted to Sacred Heart Medical Center in Eugene. The accident is under investigation.
