TEEN SHOT DURING HUNTING TRIP

POSTED: 1:41 pm EST January 11, 2005
UPDATED: 2:00 pm EST January 11, 2005

A 17-year-old boy is in critical condition after he was accidentally shot during a hunting trip.

Robert Selph was hunting with a group of friends in a wooded area close to the Volusia/Brevard county line near Dixie Road at U.S. Hwy. 1, WESH NewsChannel 2 reported.

They had just finished hunting and were walking back to their vehicle when one boy's gun accidentally hit Selph.

Selph reportedly got upset, grabbed the weapon and slammed it to the ground, witnesses said.

They told deputies that the 12-gauge shotgun went off, shooting him in the leg and abdomen. The teens said they called 911, loaded Selph into a truck and took him down the road to meet paramedics.

He is expected to survive.

The group included four teens who were hunting without adult supervision. Selph, a 14-year-old and a 15-year old are from Mims. Another 15-year-old is from Titusville.

A spokesman for the Volusia County Sheriff's Office said he does not expect there to be any charges since the teen who was shot caused the accident.
