Hunter Accidentally Killed by 6-Year-Old Grandson

6.35 p.m. ET (2346 GMT) November 21, 1999

LOGAN, W.Va. (AP) A West Virginia man was accidentally shot and killed by his 6-year-old grandson while the two were hunting rabbits, authorities said.

Scott Workman, of Big Creek, and his grandson, Tyler Workman, were hunting on a steep hillside near the family's home Friday when the boy slipped. A shotgun the boy was carrying fired, hitting his grandfather, said a sheriff's spokesman.

"It's just a tragic accident,'' Terry Ballard of the state Division of Natural Resources said Sunday. The agency investigates all hunting-related accidents, and Ballard said authorities did not expect any charges to be filed.

After the accident, the youngster ran home and reported the shooting, Ballard said.
