Gun safety stressed after accidental shooting incident

An accidental shooting this past weekend with a hunting rifle that caused injury to a nine-year-old boy in Nasewaupee has local law enforcement officials reminding hunters to use extreme care when handling a firearm.  Department of Natural Resources Conservation Warden Chris Kratcha says a gun’s muzzle should always be pointed in a safe direction.  He shares the four primary rules of firearm safety.



According to the Door County Sheriff’s Office, a 45-year-old man was trying to clear his rifle in the home at about 7 am on Sunday when the firearm discharged, striking the boy in another room in the leg.  The boy was taken to a Green Bay hospital, and no updated information is available on his condition.
