HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Officials say the shooting death of a central Pennsylvania turkey hunter was an accident.

Dauphin County Coroner Graham Hetrick says 57-year-old Howard Lynd III was accidentally shot by his son on Saturday evening. Hetrick says the Millersburg man was shot in the chest by a small caliber bullet.

Hetrick says Lynd's son thought he was shooting at a turkey. The son dialed
911 and performed CPR but was unable to save his father.

The state game commission is investigating.
