LOUISVILLE (WAVE) -- A hunting outing Sunday ended tragically for
a Kentuckiana father who accidently killed his son.
It happened in eastern Oldham County when the man and his 14-year
old son were out turkey hunting. The two had been out for about 30
minutes and had separated.
Officer Matt Cornell of the Oldham County Police tells WAVE 3 the
father was standing on a ridge when he noticed movement on another
ridge. He fired his shotgun and when he went to check it out, he
found his son dead. The boy was killed instantly.
The identities of the father and son have not been released.
Oldham County Police are expected to release more information about
the accident on Tuesday.
