Ala. man shot in groin by hog hunter at camp
COTTONDALE, Ala. (AP) — Authorities say a man shot in the groin at an Alabama hunting camp may have been mistaken for wild game.
Al.com reports (http://bit.ly/10EU8ZM ) the Tuscaloosa County sheriff's homicide unit is investigating the shooting early Saturday, which sent a 26-year-old man to a hospital for surgery.
Investigators say the victim was shot by a 36-year-old old man who was hunting wild hogs, and they suspect the hunter believed he was firing his gun at an animal. Authorities said both men had permission to be at the hunting camp on Clements Road.
Investigators released the suspect without charging him, but say they're still investigating. They say no foul play is suspected.
Authorities did not identify the hunter or the person who was shot.
