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