December 30, 2016


A 14 year old Cashmere boy was injured Thursday afternoon in a hunting accident near Rock Island when a shotgun accidentally discharged and wounded him in the leg.

The victim and his 17 year old hunting partner had been duck hunting near the Columbia River. A 12 gauge shotgun discharged when a branch snagged the trigger while the boys were retrieving a duck.
