Man Shot In Hunting Accident

Associated Press - November 2, 2014 6:48 pm

Authorities say a man has been wounded in a hunting accident in central Kansas.

The Clay County sheriff’s office said in a news release Sunday that a 12-year-old shot 56-year-old Jerome Valdez of Holton in the back. The accident happened just before 11 a.m. while the pair was flushing a covey of quail.

Valdez was taken to the Clay County Hospital and then flown to a Salina hospital. The sheriff’s office and the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks are investigating.
