MT: Sister kills brother in hunting accident

October 26, 2010

Authorities ID teen killed in hunting accident

GREAT FALLS Authorities have released the name of a 17-year-old Power boy who was accidentally shot in the face and killed as his 14-year-old sister unloaded a rifle.

Blaine County Coroner Marvin Edwards says the victim was Augustus Chamakoon-Leigland.

Investigators say the boy had been hunting with family and friends on Bureau of Land Management property in the Missouri River Breaks about 70 miles south of Chinook.

Undersheriff Pat Pyette says the group was wrapping up hunting at about 6 p.m. Saturday when the boy's sister was removing the bullets from her hunting rifle. The gun discharged, killing her brother who was standing less than 5 feet away.

A 16-year-old Malta boy, Logan Wilson, also died Saturday in a hunting accident.
