A fire and rescue boat heads to the Jones Valley Marina where officers, medics and rescue teams were awaiting word Thursday on a 13-year-old boy who died after being shot while hunting with his father and friends near Lake Shasta.

A 13-year-old boy died this afternoon after he was shot while hunting off the Pit River Arm of Lake Shasta.

Dispatchers said the shooting occurred about 1:35 p.m. in the area of Robert's Canyon. Robert’s Canyon is about two miles west of the Fenders Ferry Bridge in Montgomery Creek.

The boy had been hunting with his father and other friends, Sgt. Steve Grashoff said.

Authorities are not releasing names or any further information until all family members are contacted and an investigation is complete, Grashoff said

A group of deputies, medics and rescue teams met at the Jones Valley boat ramp after getting the 911 report to coordinate how to reach the boy, whose hunting party had reportedly taken a boat up the lake and had walked in to their hunting spot.

A coroner was called to the boat ramp shortly after 3 p.m., dispatchers reported.
