CA: Rialto man shot during Lytle Creek hunting trip
November 15, 2013
Chris Ayres took his dog and rifle into the Lytle Creek
wilderness north of Fontana on Nov. 9 in search of deer, but instead
became a target himself.
The 45-year-old Rialto is
recovering from a gunshot wound to his leg and arm. Law enforcement
officers aren’t sure if the shooting was accidental or intentional.
About 3:30 p.m. he began hearing a series of gunshots while
standing on a ridge. He thought a hunter might be trying to spook
wildlife out of cover. Then he realized the bullets were coming
straight at him.
After 15 to 20 shots, a bullet struck his
leg, piercing his buttocks and an arm.
