JOHNSTOWN -- A hunter accidentally shot another man Sunday afternoon in the town of Johnstown -- requiring the victim to be airlifted from the scene, the Fulton County Sheriff's Office said.

The incident occurred shortly before 1 p.m. Sunday in the area of Wemple and Water Shed roads, west of the city of Johnstown.

The Fulton County Sheriff's Office had few details on the accident.
Sheriff's deputies, fire and EMS personnel apparently treated the victim at the scene before he was airlifted.

It is unclear which hospital the victim was taken to, or the extent of his injuries. Officials from the Fulton County Sheriff's Office did not have those details available Sunday night.

The incident remains under investigation, and more information is expected to be released Monday morning by Sheriff Thomas Lorey.
