MARION, Ohio -- Authorities said Wednesday that a hunter who was shot and killed Tuesday in a Marion County field was accidentally shot by a member of his own hunting party, NBC 4's Natalie Walston reported.

Trevor Beeney, 32, of Marion, was struck once in the torso with a shotgun slug about 4 p.m. in woods near Owens and Maple Grove roads.

Authorities said Beeney was accidentally shot from 80 yards away by someone in his six-person hunting team.

"We don't believe, at this point, somebody purposely went out to kill another person that day," said Jim Quinlivan of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. "The witnesses were very cooperative."

Officials said that it appeared that hunting party was likely highly visible.

"Our officers recovered a lot of hunter orange from the scene," Quinlivan said. "We're trying to determine who was wearing what."

Beeney's former teacher at Pleasant High School said he had a love for his wife, three young boys and for hunting.

"It's just a terrible tragedy," former teacher Jim Brehm said. "He was a wonderful, fine student and young man. He had three wonderful kids. This is a huge loss."

Beeney's family issued a statement about the shooting.

"He loved without any boundaries," his sister-in-law, Katie Henry, said in the statement. "He was so loving and good. He was a good father, husband, son and provider. Nobody can say anything negative about Trevor."

ODNR is working with the Marion County Sheriff's Office to determine if any charges will be filed, Walston reported.
