A teenage hunter was injured Sunday morning in the town of Pamelia when his shotgun discharged, shooting him in the chest, according to the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department.

He was pulled from the brush and taken to Samaritan Medical Center. The hospital declined to comment on his condition Sunday night.
