One injured in hunting accident

MeritCare Fargo called in to Richland County dispatch to state that a 59-year-old male had been admitted Sunday for treatment of a gunshot wound.

Harold Reier, Fargo, stated he had been hunting with David Johnson, also of Fargo, southwest of Wyndmere when they decided to shoot at some targets with a .22 caliber pistol. The pistol became jammed because of a misfeed. Johnson tried to clear the misfeed but the pistol fired a round instead, striking Reier in the right leg. Johnson helped Reier to his pickup and the two drove to MeritCare. The extent of Reier's injury is unknown at this time.

The North Dakota Game and Fish Department and the Richland County Sheriff's Office investigated the incident. No charges will be filed.
