EPHRATA, Wash. -- An off-duty Grant County sheriff's deputy was shot in the back while hunting near Soap Lake.

He says he saw other hunters in the area Thursday and was leaving when he heard a shot and felt a burning sensation in his right side. A hiker heard his cries for help and called 911.

Grant County Chief Criminal Deputy John Turley says the victim underwent emergency surgery at Good Samaritan Hospital in Moses Lake.

The State Patrol is investigating whether the shooting was intentional or accidental.
