December 22, 2011

From 13WHAM.com

Junius, N.Y. - Deputies report that Jarrod Ticconi, 26 was raccoon hunting with his father Joseph Ticconi, 53 of Seneca Falls and his brother Joseph Ticconi II, 31, of Savannah.

According to the Seneca County Sheriff's Office they were in the woods west of Bedell Road in Junius at about 10:17 p.m. when the incident occurred.

They reported that after treeing a raccoon, the elder Ticconi tried to harvest the animal--but his gun misfired. He reloaded the 22 rifle and was raising it in a second attempt, when the gun discharged and the round stuck Jarrod Ticconi in the neck.

Jarrod was treated at the scene and flown to Strong Hospital. He is listed in guarded condition.

Junius Fire Department helped at the scene.

The NYS DEC is assisting the Sheriff’s Office with the ongoing investigation.
