A hunting accident injured a Seneca County man over the weekend. The Advertiser-Tribune reports the incident happened Saturday morning in a wooded area. Marty McQuistion of Tiffin was hunting for squirrels with a friend when he suffered a shotgun blast to the chest.

Sheriff Bill Eckelberry tells the newspaper the other hunter shot at a squirrel and then fired a second round that hit McQuistion from about 50 feet away. Eckelberry says McQuistion’s friend was focused on the squirrel and didn’t know anyone was standing so close.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources is investigating the incident.
