No Charges Filed

UPDATED: 4:43 pm EDT April 19, 2005

JACKSON, Ohio -- A Chillicothe man remained hospitalized Tuesday after he was shot in the head during Monday's opening day of turkey-hunting season.

The Jackson County Sheriff's Office said Ross Cremeans Jr. was setting up a decoy when another hunter took the decoy as a turkey and shot him.

Cremeans, 37, was airlifted to The Ohio State University Medical Center, NBC 4 reported.

The suspected shooter would not be identified until either charges were filed or the department had wrapped up the investigation, according to the Chillicothe Gazette.
