Oneida teen hurt in hunting incident

ONEIDA — A 15-year-old Oneida boy was receiving treatment at a Green Bay hospital Monday night after accidentally shooting himself in the lower left leg while hunting near Moore Road.

Sgt. Mark Ninham of the Oneida Police Department said the boy was hunting rabbits when he tripped and fell, causing his 20-gauge shotgun to discharge at about 3:30 p.m. Monday. Town of Oneida First Responders and County Rescue Service assisted at the scene.

The boy's injuries were not believed to be life-threatening, Ninham said.

Further information was withheld at the request of the boy's family.
