Indiana Conservation Officers and the Jennings County Sheriff’s Department were called to investigate a reported self-inflicted gunshot injury in Jennings County Saturday.
Officials say 20-year-old Tony L. Dotson, of Indianapolis, was treated at the Jennings St. Vincent emergency room for a gunshot wound to his foot that he reported he sustained while deer hunting.
Dotson told investigators that he was walking out of the field from deer hunting when he slipped and fell causing the 12 gauge shotgun he was carrying to discharge. He said the safety was on at the time of the incident. The slug struck Dotson in the foot. His injuries are not life threatening. He was transported by helicopter to Indianapolis for further treatment.
