- A well-known Laurel business-owner "doing what he loved, where
he loved to do it" was killed during a reported hunting accident
A 55-year-old hunter was with his son on family land near
Heidelberg Tuesday morning when the accident occurred. Early reports
show a gun discharged with the bullet striking the father's chest.
The accident, which occurred around 10 a.m., was still under
