Concord man shoots himself in foot while hunting in Stewartstown
November 25. 2017 8:38PM
Charles Lamoureux, 50, was deer hunting with his 12-gauge shotgun when he shot himself in the right foot.
Fish and Game officials said the shotgun then slipped from Lamoureux’s grasp and, when he caught it, the gun discharged with the slug hitting the outside edge of his foot.
Members of Lamoureux’s hunting party provided assistance, one retrieving a car, and another providing medical aid until Fish and Game officials could arrive on the scene.
Lamoureux was able to walk under his own power to his car and was brought to Upper Connecticut Valley Hospital in Colebrook for treatment.
Fish and Game officials said Lamoureux was later brought to see a specialist for follow-up treatment at Concord Hospital.
No charges are expected from this incident, Fish and Game officials said.
