4-year-old boy shot in hunting accident

LOGANSPORT, La. (AP) - Authorities say a 4-year-old boy from south Louisiana was shot in the face by a stray bullet over the weekend and is expected to survive.

Tanner Meyers was visiting with family in north DeSoto Parish on Saturday and was walking in a rural area with his father when two nearby hunters running dogs along a pipeline fired several shots at a deer.

DeSoto Sheriff's Detective Adam Ewing said a buckshot pellet from the shotgun shells struck the child in the face.

Meyers was flown by helicopter to LSU Hospital in Shreveport, where he underwent surgery late Saturday.

Ewing said the child's injuries were not believed to be life-threatening.
