HUNTER INVOLVED IN FATAL SHOOTING WAS HUNTING ILLEGALLY

The Maine Warden Service says a Newport man was hunting illegally when he shot his friend to death earlier this month in woods off Route 222 in Levant.

LEVANT, Maine (AP) -- Officials say 20-year-old Adam Nason fired the shot that killed James Griffin Junior of Levant at approximately five p-m on November eighth. That's about 15 minutes after legal hunting ended that day.

It was Maine's first hunting-related shooting death since December 2001.

Sergeant Patrick Devlin said Griffin and two cousins were hunting together when Nason, who arrived later in the day, fired the fatal shot as he sat on a tree stump and watched for deer.

Warden Service officials met yesterday with the Maine Attorney General's Office to discuss whether charges will be filed.
