A 15-year-old boy accidentally shot himself in the foot while hunting geese in Lancaster County, according to police.

East Lampeter Township police said the boy was hunting in a field along the 2400 block of Old Philadelphia Pike, and was returning to a blind after retrieving a bird when his shotgun discharged Monday afternoon.

He was sent to Lancaster General Hospital for treatment. His name was not released.

The investigation was turned over to the Pennsylvania Game Commission.
