Monroe Co. teen dies in ATV, shotgun mishap

A 16-year-old Carleton teen died Sunday afternoon, shot during a hunting accident in Monroe County woods, according to investigators.

The boy and two 17-year-old boys all had shotguns as they were driving 4-wheel all-terrain vehicles in Ash Township at 3:11 p.m. Sunday, Monroe County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Joe Higham said today.

As they drove the ATVs in woods near Briar Hill Road north of Carleton Rockwood Road, one of the guns discharged, hitting the 16-year-old.

The boy was pronounced dead at the scene and Sheriff's Office investigators ruled the incident a hunting accident.

The Wayne County Medical Examiner is expected to perform an autopsy today. A 32-year-old Monroe County man is also in critical condition today after a separate ATV crash Sunday afternoon.
