Medford teen shoots man in hunting accident

The Oregon State Police says a Medford boy injured a 65-year-old man while hunting for turkey west of Central Point.

Sgt. Kirk Meyer of the OSP's Fish and Wildlife Division says the 14-year-old used a shotgun to fire at a dark shape in the brush early Saturday. The man was hit twice from a distance of 50-65 yards.

The victim was taken to Rogue Valley Medical Center for treatment of about 130 pellet wounds.

Meyer says the boy was hunting with another teen and their fathers.

The case has been forwarded to the Jackson County District Attorney's Office for review of possible charges.

I hope the man was not seriously injured and will make a full recovery. As for the teen that shot him twice, I think that he should have his hunting privilages permantly revoked. Accidents happen, but this kid is not a safe hunter and should not be allowed near a firearm or any other projectile!
