Officers with the Division of Natural Resources were investigating a
shooting at the Colliers Sportsmen's Club in Brooke County.
Officials said 67-year-old David Nale from Colliers shot 35-year-old John
McKinney from Follansbee during a hunting incident. Emergency crews said the
victim was alert and conscious when he was flown to UPMC in Pittsburgh. He
suffered a single gunshot wound to the back of the neck. Officials said the
shooter used a .17-caliber rifle. Investigators said the shooting was
unintentional, but Nale could still face charges.
