NORTH WEBSTER, Ind -- Conservation Officers are investigating the shooting of a deer hunter Saturday at approximately 3:30 p.m.


3 juveniles were squirrel hunting on the DNR Tri-County Fish & Wildlife property. A 16-year-old hunter reported that he fired two shots at what he thought was a squirrel when 33-year-old Trenton Wogoman shouted, "you shot me!"
