KY: Hunting accident kills Casey man

Hunting accident kills Casey man

Jan 14, 2011

A hunter is thought to have accidentally shot himself in the head Thursday, Kentucky State Police said.

At 12:45 p.m., Casey County Coroner Tommy Clark called state police about the death of Antonio Hernandez, 19, who was found in a field by friends about a half-mile from his home on Sharp Road.

The friends went looking for Hernandez after he did not return home from deer hunting, state police said in a news release.

The investigation revealed that Hernandez died from a single gunshot wound to the head after his .22-caliber rifle accidentally discharged.

No foul play is suspected, police said.
