Man, 32, Injured in Hunting Accident
PINE PLAINS - A 32-year-old Tarrytown man was injured after he was shot
with multiple shotgun pellets Saturday afternoon during what police said
was apparently a hunting accident.
Andrew Shipman was hunting quail with a group of people at the Mashomack
Preserve in Pine Plains when the accident occurred at about 3 p.m., state
police at Rhinebeck said. Police said investigation showed that Shipman
was separated from the group when an acquaintance, Brian M. Gillott, 30,
of Old Greenwich, Conn., reportedly saw a flock of birds take off and
fired a 12-guage shotgun in the birds' direction.
Shipman was in the same direction and was
struck with multiple shotgun pellets, sustaining injuries from his chin to
his leg, police said. Police said the injured man was taken by private
vehicle to Sharon Hospital in Sharon, Conn. He was expected to undergo
surgery on today, according to police.
Police said Shipman remained fully conscious
during the ride to the hospital and was interviewed there by troopers.
Shipman's injuries did not appear to be life threatening, according to
Investigation is continuing and no criminal
charges had been filed as of Saturday evening.
