Authorities say a man was killed in a hunting accident Sunday morning in Reynolds County.Are they saying it was considered an accident BECAUSE the victim was not wearing orange clothing? Is that why the shooter was excused for his gross negligence?
According to Reynolds County Sheriff Tom Volner, Sunday morning around 7:30 , a group of hunters went out to hunt in the Lesterville area.
Volner says as they went out, the hunters spread out on their own. According to the sheriff, the 50-year-old hunter was shot and killed by another hunter in his group from about 50 to 75 yards away.
Sheriff Volner says the 50-year-old man was not wearing any orange attire and had a white beard. Volner says the shooting is not being considered suspicious and was purely accidental.
