A 66-year-old man was hospitalized after shooting himself while
hunting at Las Ciengas National Conservation Area last week.
At 1:19 p.m. on Nov. 5th a person calling from a Sierra Vista
number reported that his father had shot himself in the upper arm
and was traveling west on a road heading towards the Empire Ranch
“The victim had a loaded long rifle between his legs
while sitting in the passenger seat of a truck when they hit a bump
as they were riding down the road and the rifle went off hitting the
victim in the left arm and exiting through the roof,” said Deputy
Tom Peine of the Pima County Sheriff’s Department.
