A Whitehouse Station man was killed Wednesday while hunting after he was shot in the abdomen by a friend, authorities said.

Henry Zurawski, 64, was pronounced dead at an area hospital, although police said he was conscious and breathing when rescue workers responded around 6 p.m. to 347 Mountain Road for the reported hunting accident.

Authorities said Ronald Karnaugh, 42, of Lebanon Borough hit Zurawski with one shotgun round as Zurawski was walking through the woods in an attempt to push deer toward Karnaugh.

Both men had permission to hunt deer on the property but were doing so out of season, police said.

An investigation is being conducted by township police with assistance from the Hunterdon County Prosecutor's Office and the state Division of Fish & Wildlife.

Police said they will decide whether or not to file criminal charges after "a comprehensive investigation.
