EXETER, R.I. -- A hunter accidentally shot by another hunter Wednesday morning in the Arcadia Management Area has died, the state police said.

The state police identified the victim as Donald H. Mallette, 45, of Warwick.

Mallette was deer hunting with four other men, authorities said. The five had been hunting for years, officials said.

The shooting happened just before 11 a.m. in an area near Breakheart Pond.

Mallette was taken by ambulance to Kent Hospital in Warwick, where he later died, the state police said.

"It definitely was a tragic accident," said Forest Ranger Dave Palumbo, who was posted at Breakheart Trail, turning away onlookers.

The state police, the attorney general's office and the Department of Environmental Management police are investigating.
