Paris man shot in Oxford hunting incident


UPDATE: Paris man in hospital after he was shot by another hunter

OXFORD — A man was seriously injured Saturday afternoon in a hunting incident off Plains Road, according to Cpl. John MacDonald of the Maine Warden Service.

A man in his 30s from Paris was shot by a 21-year-old man from Oxford just after 2 p.m., MacDonald said. 

The man who was shot was flown by LifeFlight to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston with serious injuries to both of his arms.

MacDonald said he believes the two men were among the same hunting party with two other people.

He said they were probably hunting deer, but they are investigating what kind of behavior was taking place at the time.

Police said the names of the victim and the shooter would not be released Saturday. 

Saturday was the last day of the regular firearms hunting season in Maine. 

On the first day of the season Oct. 28, Karen Wrentzel, 34, was fatally shot in Hebron by a 38-year-old Robert Trundy. Wrentzel was on her own land and was not hunting at the time. Trundy was hunting with friends. He was charged with manslaughter in the shooting.
