Authorities Blame 'Errant Shot' From Another Hunter

WHITMIRE, S.C. -- A hunter was hospitalized after he was shot in the arm Saturday morning, authorities say.

According to the Newberry County Sheriff's Office, the dispatch center received a cell phone call that someone had been shot while hunting.

The Sheriff's Office said the shooting happened off Mohican Trail in the Maybinton area, which is not far from Whitmire.

Investigators said it appears the hunter was hit by an errant shot that came from a group of hunters who were in the same area. The Sheriff's Office said the injury is not life-threatening.

The victim was taken to Spartanburg Regional Hospital. Authorities withheld the victim's name, pending notification of family members.

The Department of Natural Resources is leading the investigation.
