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.
