Officials: Hooksett man accidentally shot by hunting partner

DUNBARTON - A Hooksett man was injured Saturday when he was accidentally shot by his hunting partner, according to a release from the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department.

Glen Ranfos, 58, was hunting in Dunbarton shortly before 7:30 a.m. Saturday when the shooting happened, the release said. He was sitting in "a brushy area" waiting for his hunting companion, Kenneth Ranfos. The release did not say if the men are related.

Kenneth Ranfos saw movement in the brush that he believed to be a turkey - it was Glen Ranfos removing his hat - and fired one shot from his 12 guage shotgun that struck Glen Ranfos, the release said.

Kenneth drove Glen to a Manchester hospital, where he was treated for his injuries and released, the release said.
