NRP investigates two hunting accidents One fatal, one very serious

CENTREVILLE, Md. - The Maryland Natural Resources Police (NRP) is investigating two hunting accidents on the Eastern Shore.

The second hunting accident occurred at 12:40 p.m. on Willey's Neck Road, Crapo, in Dorchester County.

The investigation has revealed that Phillip Councell, 25, of Cordova was hunting deer with a muzzle loading rifle.

Councell attempted to load the rifle by packing black powder into the barrel with a ramrod. The muzzle loader discharged which caused the ramrod to severely injure Councell. A hunting companion, Howard Thomas Callahan, 25, witnessed the accident.

Callahad is a paramedic and rendered aid while calling 911 for assistance.
