Deer hunter accused of killing man near Silverton

SALEM, Ore. (AP) -- Marion County sheriff's deputies arrested a deer hunter in the shooting death of a man who was gathering plants for floral arrangements in the woods east of Silverton.

The sheriff's office says after 20-year-old Elias Sontay of Woodburn was shot Tuesday afternoon, a friend going for help noticed the hunters driving away.

The Oregonian reports Oregon State Police troopers stopped the car and 50-year-old William C. Rogers of Brooks was arrested, facing a negligent homicide charge.

Rogers said he fired at what he thought was a deer, saw a deer run away and thought he had missed.
