A deer hunter from Greenback has died after he was shot in the
head with a crossbow.
William Nathan Norris, 37, was deer
hunting with a partner on private property along Highway 411 in
Greenback when the accident happened Wednesday afternoon, Tennessee
Wildlife Resource Agency officers reported.
Norris crossed a
fence ahead of his hunting partner and the crossbow discharged,
hitting Norris in the head.
Initial reports from TWRA
indicated that Norris was carrying the crossbow when the arrow
discharged, but investigators now say Norris' hunting partner was
carrying the bow.
