Two people were shot in two separate hunting incidents in Washington County this weekend.

In the first incident, Sheriff's officials say Thomas Minton of Waterford was loading his hunting dogs into a vehicle when his shotgun accidentally discharged and struck his left hand.

Minton was able to drive himself to the hospital.

Officials say the second accident happened when a 13 year old girl tried to shoot a rabbit and accidentally shot a twelve-year old boy in the elbow.

One of the adults supervising the group, drove the boy to Marietta Memorial Hospital. DNR Conservation Officers are investigating both incidents.
