A man is in critical condition after being injured in a hunting accident early Saturday morning.

Officials with the Doolittle Rural Fire Protection District and the Phelps County Regional Medical Center responded to a location on CR 7360 for a man suffering from a gunshot wound around 7:20 a.m.

They found the man with a “large caliber gunshot wound to the lower abdomen.”

Fire personnel on the scene began treating the victim.

They continued to assist them until a Phelps Air Helicopter was dispatched to airlift the man to a trauma center.

No other information on the man's condition has been released.

This story will be updated when more information is available.

This incident comes about a week after an Arnold man and a high school coach from southeast Missouri were killed in separate hunting accidents.
