Hunter hit by shotgun blast

SoVaNow.com / November 27, 2013

A 26-year-old resident of Goochland, Anthony Thomas Clark, suffered injuries from a shotgun blast on Saturday,while hunting in the Boydton area.

A preliminary eyewitness account provided by a 54-year-old Baskerville resident indicate that the victim was hunting with a 12-year-old Baskerville boy when the shooting happened, according to an incident report by the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries.

Both Clark and the 12-year-old shot at a deer. The deer got between the hunters and the juvenile swung his gun around and fired on the target again.

It has not been confirmed that the shotgun blast that struck Clark came from the boy’s gun. He has passed a hunter safety course and has a hunting license, according to Officer Mathew Sandy with the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, the lead law enforcement officer investigating the incident.

Clark was struck by gunshot pellets and received injuries to his collarbone and right hip. He was treated by a Boydton Life Station rescue unit before being airlifted from Boydton to MCV in Richmond where he received additional medical care.

No update on the condition of the patient was available at press time. Alcohol was not a factor, according to the DGIF report.
