LISBON, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire hunter has been indicted in a shooting that killed a 31-year-old Massachusetts man.

Wade Holmes, 49, of Lisbon, has been charged with negligent homicide and reckless shooting in the death last November of Kenneth Brunelle, 31, of Marlboro, Mass.

Brunelle was unarmed and walking with his father and brother on opening day of firearm deer season when he was shot once and instantly killed.

WMUR-TV reports that the indictment charges Holmes with not pinpointing a target before firing.

A telephone listed to Wade is not in service. It was not immediately known if he has a lawyer.
