MEDFORD — A Medford man who thought he was shooting a turkey
accidentally shot a 16-year-old youth yesterday, police said.
The youth, whose name was not released, was not seriously
injured, according to police.
Warren W. Post, 44, of Mount Holly Road was hunting in the
Medford Wildlife Management Area on Ark Road when he fired a shotgun
just before 7 a.m., police said. The shot hit a Mount Holly
teenager, who was hunting in the same area.
The birdshot wounded the youth in the head, neck, torso and right
arm, police said. Paramedics transported the youth to Cooper
University Hospital in Camden. The wounds were superficial, and the
youth was released yesterday, police said.
The Medford Police Criminal Investigations Bureau and the state
Department of Environmental Protection's Division of Fish and
Wildlife are investigating.
