A Greeneville man died Saturday morning in an apparent hunting
accident in South Greene County, authorities said.
Larry Broyles, 49, was hunting with his son in woods behind
Parrish Drive, Detective Capt. John Huffine of the Greene County
Sheriff’s Department said this morning.
Huffine said Broyles’ son was hunting some distance away and
heard a gunshot but didn’t respond immediately.
"He probably figured it was his father shooting at something,"
About 20 minutes later the son found Broyles lying in the woods
with a single gunshot wound to the chest. Huffine said investigators
believe Broyles dropped the rifle, which discharged when a branch
snagged the trigger.
