The Department of Game and Inland Fisheries is investigating a
hunting accident that occurred in Culpeper County Thursday morning.
Sgt. Phillip Parrish said a man was shot around 9:10 a.m. with
several shotgun pellets on one side of his body. The injuries were
not expected to be life threatening. Parrish was not sure if the
victim was still in the hospital. He said information on the
accident was scarce because the game warden investigating the case
was out in the field and unreachable at press time.
More than two people, believed to be from out of state, were
involved in the hunting party.
Parrish says charges could be pending.
