MN: Father shoots 14-yr-old son in hunting accident

Father shoots, injures son in hunting accident

11/13/2010

SAUK CENTRE TOWNSHIP, Minn. -- Minnesota authorities say a Melrose man
accidentally shot and injured his 14-year-old son while their group was
hunting deer.

The Stearns County sheriff's office released a statement saying 41-year-old
Robert James Gieske was hunting with his son, Taylor, and three others on
Saturday afternoon.

Deputies say Taylor was attempting to drive a deer out of heavy willow
brush. They say the father saw a deer run out of the thicket and fired.

The statement says Taylor was accidentally struck by the shotgun round and
taken to a hospital. It doesn't say where he was hit.

A spokeswoman at St. Cloud Hospital said Taylor was in fair condition
Saturday evening.
