(AP) — Authorities say a 48-year-old Omaha man has died following a weekend hunting accident near Macy, in northeast Nebraska.
The state Game and Parks Commission says the man was shot in the buttocks with a rifle on Sunday while hunting with four other people. The incident took place on the Omaha Indian Reservation, where an early deer-hunting season was in progress.
The man was taken to a Winnebago hospital, where he was pronounced dead. An autopsy has been ordered. Authorities did not identify the man.
The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, the Nebraska State Patrol, Omaha tribal officers and the Thurston County sheriff’s office are investigating.
