From WDTV.com

A young man was shot while hunting in Harrison County Wednesday morning.

Around 8, a 22-year-old man was shot in the leg while hunting on private land in the Matheny Hill area of Enterprise. He was taken to United Hospital Center where he was expected to be OK.

There's still not much being released about what happened but we do know that a 50-year-old man who was also hunting in the area told investigators that he was shooting a deer when somewhere, the 22 year old was struck.
Charges are pending.

The Harrison County Sheriff's Department is assisting the Division of Natural Resources police with the investigation.
