A man was airlifted to UK Medical Center after being shot with his own gun.

Laurel County Sheriff's deputies said the 36-year-old man from Keavy was hunting just before 8 p.m. off Parman Road near London Thursday when his gun accidentally went off and shot him.

They said the man was hunting with other people when his dog treed a raccoon. Deputies said as the man was trying to separate his dog from the raccoon his .22 rifle accidentally went off and hit the man in his stomach.

Deputies said the man was airlifted to Lexington to be treated for the gunshot wound.

We do not know his condition at this time.
