Two Hunters Shot and Killed in Yazoo County

23 November 2003

Two hunters were shot and killed Saturday morning by fellow hunters in separate shootings in rural Yazoo County.

According to the Yazoo County coroner, 81-year-old Sylvester Young of Yazoo City was hunting at eight Saturday morning in a wooded area between Yazoo City and Benton. When Young walked up a ditch bank into a field, another hunter shot him. The name of the hunter was not released. Although the shooting appears accidental, the Yazoo County Sheriff's Department is investigating.

Another hunting shooting took place later Saturday about 12 miles southeast of Yazoo City. Sixty-one-year-old Travis Powell, also of Yazoo City, was killed while he was searching for a deer that had been shot. The name of the hunter who shot Powell also was not released.
