“According to witnesses, they were out there shooting a rifle,” sheriff’s investigator David Corona said. “They went searching for him and found him.”
“According to them they did have a get-together, and did have a few drinks, I guess,” Corona said.
Witnesses said that Ong was found in a wooded area near the pond.
Ong was hit in the head by a bullet, Brock said. The state medical examiner’s office performed an autopsy and released Tuesday the cause of death and its determination that the shooting was accidental.
“He was riding a four-wheeler,” Brock said. “He was in a thick-wooded area.
“It was just a fluke accident. It was just a very unfortunate accident.”
There is no such thing as a gun "accident." Every single one of these incidents involves the violation of at least one of the 4 Rules of Gun Safety.
What's your opinion? Should the so-called gun accidents be taken more seriously?
