HILLSBORO - A 34-year-old man hunting hogs with family members in Hill County has died after being shot in an apparent hunting accident.

Bryan Schronk of Stephenville was hunting with five others off Hill County Road 4205 Monday evening about ten miles northwest of Hillsboro.

Investigators say he was supposed to have been on the perimeter of the hunting area driving hogs toward the hunters but was wearing black. One of the hunters who had just shot another black hog saw another black object moving in an area where Schronk was not expected to be and fired. Schronk was hit in the upper torso with a 12 gauge shotgun slug.

He was airlifted to John Peter Smith Hospital in Ft Worth where he was later pronounced dead. The incident is being investigated by the Hill County Sheriff's Office.
