UPDATE (11:10 a.m.)—A man who accidentally shot himself while hunting in Monkton was flown Saturday to Maryland Shock Trauma.

Around 9 a.m. a 53-year-old Dundalk man was hunting in the 3800 block of Houcks Road in Monkton when he accidentally shot himself in the thigh, according to Monica Worrell, public information officer with the Harford County Sheriff's Office.

The man was flown by medevac to Shock Trauma for treatment. He was conscious and alert shortly before 10 a.m. while waiting for the medevac, police said.

"It doesn't appear to be life-threatening at all," Worrell said of the injury.

Worrel said the gun involved is one typically used for hunting, but did not have additional details.

Police had not released the man's name as of 11:10 a.m. because not all of his family had been notified of the accident.
