AMERICUS, Kan. (AP) - Lyon County officers are investigating the
death of a 19-year-old Americus man who was shot while hunting.
Beau Arndt died early yesterday when he and a friend were hunting
fowl on property in northwest Lyon County.
Arndt graduated from Northern Heights High School in May.
Lyon County sheriff's authorities are trying to locate a vehicle of
interest in the shooting. The late-1970s Ford pickup with a red cab
has Shawnee County license plates.
Early, unconfirmed reports from witnesses said Arndt may have been
hit by shots from the truck, although Lyon County authorities are
calling the shooting an accident.
