A 71-year-old man was in stable condition on Friday after
accidently shooting himself with his shotgun.
Chief Deputy Scott Cass said the man was returning from hunting
coyotes at his property on CR 42400. He propped his gun on a fence
as he was closing the gate, lost his balance, and accidently grabbed
the gun, which went off and struck him in the chest.
