TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Wildlife officials are investigating a hunting accident in Pasco County that left one person injured with a gunshot wound.

A report by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission says two friends and their dog went out early Saturday morning to hunt deer. While traveling down a bumpy road, “the dog got excited in the truck” and bumped a rifle. A shot was fired, hitting 78-year-old Billy Brown who was driving the truck.

Brown was taken to the hospital. The extent of his injuries has not yet been released. The other hunter was not immediately identified.

The accident happened near Wesley Chapel, about 20 miles north of Tampa.

FWC says the two have been hunting together for over 25 years.
