Another young hunter killed in Kentucky

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- A 14-year-old from eastern Kentucky has died in a hunting accident.

Letcher County Deputy Coroner Wallace Bowling says 14-year-old Ryan Cantrell of Blaine fell on his muzzleloading rifle Saturday afternoon while trying to walk through mud on a mountain in eastern Kentucky.

At least two other Kentucky teens have been shot in hunting accidents since September.

Bowling said Cantrell died from an accidental self-inflicted gunshot to the neck and head while deer hunting with his stepfather and some friends.
