14-Year-Old Shot in Hunting Accident

Posted: Updated:

An adult man called dispatch at around 4p.m. stating his son had been shot while the two were hunting in the Nelson area.  According to Sheriff Leo Dutton, a father and son from Moses Lake, Washington were hunting in the Refrigerator Canyon area west of York, Montana. The teen had never been hunting before, and was handling an M-77 model 30.6 caliber rifle.     

According to the father, his son placed the butt of the gun on the vehicle floor and the muzzle toward the roof, when they hit a bump causing the rifle to discharge.  The bullet struck the son in the right bicep, exiting the right shoulder.  Currently the 14-year old boy is being treated at St. Peters hospital in Helena.  The gunshot wound is still under investigation, but authorities say it looks to be an accident, so far.
