DICKENS, Iowa - Authorities say a 12-year-old boy accidentally shot a Missouri man while they were hunting Friday morning near Dickens.

According to a statement from the Clay County Sheriff's Office, Steven Nelson, 37, was hit with shotgun pellets in the right hip and wrist while he and three other people were hunting in the 3300 block of 280th Avenue.

Authorities believe the 12-year-old boy inadvertently discharged the shotgun while he was walking along a fence line.

According to the statement, Nelson's injuries did not appear to be life threatening and no charges had been filed.
