CONWAY CO. Ark. (KTHV) -- Conway County sheriff deputies say a Springfield hunter died Friday morning after he accidentally shot himself in the leg.

According to investigators, Gary Kellar, 49, went hunting and fishing on Friday morning. He was supposed to come home that evening. His family tried to call him on his cell phone but he didn't answer. An immediate search began.

Kellar's family found him dead near Coal Chapel Road off of County Road 333. Deputies say he accidentally shot himself in the leg, below the knee. They believe he bled to death.

Today's THV is told that he tried to call 911 from his cell phone at 7:36 a.m., but it didn't connect.
