HEIDELBERG – Officials are investigating a fatal hunting incident in Jasper County.
Officials say the incident involved a husband and wife who were hunting Saturday and became separated.
The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks is investigating the incident, along with the Jasper County Sheriff’s Department.
Wildlife agency spokesman James Walker says a preliminary inquiry shows the woman was shot and killed. Walker says it appears the hunter shot at sounds and didn’t identify his target. No charges have been filed.
Walker says officials will have to reconstruct the incident and interview any witnesses involved.
