A man is in fair condition at a Wichita hospital this afternoon after being wounded in a hunting accident in Reno County.

The Reno County Sheriff's Office said David Johnson, 53, of Wichita was wounded about 8:30 this morning while hunting on public land in eastern Reno County.

The sheriff's office said the accident occurred after a pheasant took flight, prompting Johnson's brother to take a shot at it. Investigators said the brother didn't realize at the time that Johnson had taken a new position about 40 feet to his left. The birdshot struck Johnson in the side of the head, neck and shoulder.

Although he was alert and talking to rescue workers, Johnson was flown by medical helicopter to Via Christi Medical Center-St. Francis Campus because of the nature of his injuries.
