MAN SHOT AND KILLED IN APPARENT HUNTING ACCIDENT

November 17, 2004, 3:03 PM

HILLSDALE, Mich. (AP) -- A man died from a gunshot wound in an apparent hunting accident, authorities said.

Hillsdale police responding to a complaint of hunters shooting in a swampy area near a gas station Tuesday found the body of Michael Steven Aguirre, of the Detroit suburb of Taylor.

Aguirre, 27, was pronounced dead at the scene by the county medical examiner, The Jackson Citizen Patriot reported.

The wound was not self-inflicted, public safety deputy chief Bill Whorley told the Hillsdale Daily News. Whorley said a postmortem examination had been ordered, and results might not be known for several weeks.

A hunter also died on Monday -- the first day of Michigan's firearm deer season -- when he slipped from his tree stand and became entangled in his safety harness. Paul D. Crouch, 45, of Napoleon, died while hunting with a friend on property in Jackson County's Grass Lake Township.
