SWEDEN – A man was shot in the stomach by a hunter this evening in the Town of Sweden. A mutual aid call went out at 6:52 p.m. for the Clarendon Volunteer Fire Company to bring an off-road vehicle to go to a Covell Road address.

That call for mutual aid was cancelled after the Brockport Fire Department arrived on the scene, an Orleans County dispatcher said.

Rochester media this morning is reporting the accidental shooting happened in a wooded area along Lake Road. A father and son were out coyote hunting when they mistakenly shot another man.

Monroe County Sheriff’s deputies used an ATV to reach the man who was taken by ambulance to Strong Memorial Hospital for life-threatening injuries, Channel 10 in Rochester is reporting (Click here).
