10-year-old shot by uncle while hunting in Alleghany County

May 08, 2011

ALLEGHANY COUNTY, VA --

A 10-year-old boy is in the hospital, after his uncle shot him while they were turkey hunting.

The pair were hunting in Alleghany County, in the Boiling Spring area of the George Washington National Forest.

According to the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, the boy's injuries are serious, but not life-threatening. He was shot from 40 yards away.

The pellets hit the 10-year-old from the bottom of his left thigh, all the way up his shoulder. The uncle, who police say was properly licensed, has not been charged.

Their names have not been released.
