COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -According to the Harrison County Sheriff's
Office, 51-year-old Benjamin Randell Huffman of Hallsville was
killed Friday morning during a hunting incident.
County 911 dispatchers received a call at 6:10 a.m. reporting that a
shooting had just occurred near Quail Lane and Willie Smith Road.
Deputies and Texas Game Wardens arrived at a field near the south
end of Willie Road where they located Huffman's body on the ground
below a deer stand.
A witness states that he and Huffman
were planning to hunt together Friday morning. He says he climbed a
ladder and entered the deer stand before Huffman. The witness then
turned to receive his rifle from Huffman who was standing on the
ground below. When Huffman handed the rifle to the witness, the gun
discharged with the muzzle pointing downward toward Huffman.
