Woman wounded in hunting incident in western Maine

By Associated Press

PARIS, Maine -- Game wardens and state police were investigating the fatal shooting of an 18-year-old woman by a hunter.

Megan Ripley was shot in the chest at about 4 p.m. Thursday in woods at the edge of a field near her house on Christian Ridge Road, authorities said. She was pronounced dead an hour later at Stephens Memorial Hospital in Norway.

The hunter, who was wearing a blaze-orange vest, was not identified. The Sun Journal newspaper of Lewiston quoted the man as saying, "I am never going to hunt again."
