Safe Hunting?

Man Shot In Buttocks, Other Shoots Self In Foot

POSTED: 7:34 a.m. EST December 2, 2003

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Two hunters were wounded on the opening day of Ohio's gun season for deer, the state Division of Wildlife said.

David Ormeroid, 52, of Marysville was shot accidentally by another hunter, Johnny James, also of Maryville, while hunting in a field in Union County on Monday, officials said. Ormeroid underwent surgery for a buttocks wound at Grant Medical Center in Columbus and was expected to recover, said Jim Quinlivan, a wildlife division law enforcement supervisor.

While the shooting reportedly occurred 20 minutes before the hunting season legally began, the wildlife division said no charges were filed pending further investigation.

In the other incident, a hunter accidentally shot himself in the foot in Monroe County in eastern Ohio, a division spokesman said.

The hunter, who was not identified, was treated in Barnesville, then was taken to a hospital in Wheeling, W.Va. His injury was not considered life-threatening.
