HARTFORD, Vt. (WCAX) - Vermont authorities are investigating a hunting-related shooting in the Upper Valley involving a 14-year-old.

Vermont State Police say Brent Lehouiller, 52, of Pomfret, was turkey hunting with the teen off Quarry Road in Hartford Sunday morning. Vermont Fish & Wildlife officials say the son shot and wounded a turkey. Both then split up to locate the bird, but when the father attempted to shoot the turkey, he shot his son instead.

The teen was treated at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center with injuries that were not life-threatening.

Officials say the results of the investigation will be submitted to the Windsor County State’s Attorney’s Office for review to determine whether any criminal charges will be filed.
