Roseto boy, 14, shoots Bangor man in hunting accident

A 14-year-old Roseto boy accidentally shot a Bangor man in the shoulder Tuesday afternoon with a 20-gauge shotgun at an Upper Mount Bethel Township rifle range, police said.

Edward Marzigliano, 18, of Sunset Drive, Bangor, was hit with the shotgun birdshot. He was taken to St. Luke's Hospital-Fountain Hill, where police said his injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.

The boy, who was not identified, was at a rifle range on Bangor Vein Road with Marzigliano at 3 p.m. when he shot Marzigliano's back and shoulder, state police at Belfast said.

The shotgun went off as the boy moved it from his right shoulder to his left, Trooper Robert Devers reported. Marzigliano and the boy were at the rifle range hunting doves, police said.

The boy helped Marzigliano from the range to the road, where they found help. State police said they were not finished with their investigation.
