IN: Hunting accident sends Lafayette man to hospital

November 14, 2012

From Foxt59.com

Indiana Conservation Officers are investigating a hunting accident that occurred in southeastern Tippecanoe County late Monday night.
Christopher W. Rowe, 20, of Lafayette, was transported to IU Arnett Hospital in Lafayette after he sustained a single gunshot wound to the leg.
Rowe and another individual were standing on opposite sides of an old garage door panel next to a barn after their dog had led them to that location.
One individual in the party was lifting the garage door panel while Myles P. Hunley, 22, of Lafayette shot three times with a .22 rifle at an opossum that was hiding under the panel.
One of the bullets ricocheted off the ground and into Rowe’s leg.
