9-year-old boy shot in apparent hunting accident
A 9-year-old boy is in the hospital tonight after being shot in the stomach in an apparent hunting accident in Montgomery.
Police say 9-year-old David Calabrese was out hunting with his step-father, uncle and two other men when he took off his bright orange hat because he was hot. His stepfather, mistaking him for a deer, shot him in the abdomen.
Calabrese was airlifted to the hospital, where he is expected to survive.
Police took the step-father into custody to conduct an alcohol and drug test which they say is procedure.
