QUEEN ANNE, Md. -- Authorities are releasing the name of the 10-year-old Baltimore County boy who was killed by a crossbow while hunting in Talbot County Saturday evening.

Tyler Mattison was shot while he and his father, Christopher Mattison, hunted on private property near Queen Anne.

Tyler was from Parkville and was a fifth-grader at Seven Oaks Elementary School.

Investigators from the Maryland Natural Resources Police are trying to determine what happened.

DNR spokeswoman Heather Lynch says Tyler was carrying a crossbow and his father was carrying a muzzleloader during the hunt.

Neighbors say Christopher Mattison is an avid sportsman and they say his son was an animal lover.
