Suburban Phoenix brother shoots sibling in hunting accident

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — Authorities are investigating a shooting involving two
brothers who were turkey hunting southeast of Flagstaff.

Arizona Game and Fish Department officials said the men from Surprise were
pursuing and calling turkeys late Saturday when one of the men fired his
12-gauge shotgun about 25 yards away from his sibling.

Authorities said the victim was sitting against a tree and wearing camouflage
clothes at the time.

He was shot in the shoulder, but the wounds weren’t life threatening. He was
taken to Flagstaff Medical Center for treatment.

The brothers’ names haven’t been released.

Officials said the case will be reviewed by the Coconino County Attorney to
determine if charges will be filed.
