Union County authorities investigate after La Grande man shot dead by hunting arrow

Union County sheriff's detectives are investigating after a 59-year-old man was shot by a hunting arrow and died north of La Grande, the county district attorney's office reported.

Paul Rudd of La Grande was hunting Sunday morning with 53-year-old Mark Omann, also of La Grande, when they spotted a branch-antlered bull elk, according to District Attorney Timothy Thompson.

About 7:45 a.m., Omann's compound bow discharged, sending a broadhead arrow into the back of Rudd's head. Omann called 9-1-1 and medics responded, but Rudd died.
