Hunter shot in leg in Boggs Township

December 2, 2011

From CentreDaily.com

A man shot himself in the leg Thursday while he was in a vehicle in Boggs Township after hunting, a state Game Commission official said Friday.

The man’s identity could not be released, since the Game Commission considers the incident an open investigation, said Dave Carlini, a spokesman for the commission’s north central region.

The man suffered the gunshot wound around 4:45 p.m. Thursday and was last known to be in stable condition at Altoona Regional Health System, Carlini said. The vehicle he was in had been in motion on Devil’s Elbow Road, but it’s not known if the vehicle was stopped when the shot was fired. It also wasn’t immediately clear if the man who suffered the gunshot wound was the driver or a passenger. Carlini said at least one other person was in the vehicle.
