Police Investigating Hunting Accident

By Fox 40 Staff.
Police are still investigating a hunting accident they say happened off of Marsh Pond Road in the Town of Sanford Saturday afternoon...

They say 50-year-old Andy Patrick was struck by three pellets near his right eye, right side of his chest, and left shoulder. Police say Patrick and 45-year-old Duane Wayman were legally hunting squirrels with valid licenses when Wayman fired his .41 gauge shotgun at a squirrel while failing to realize that Patrick was in his line of fire. Police say he accidently shot Patrick instead. Patrick was taken to Wilson Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
