THIS is the dreadful moment a hunter gun shoots an OAP jogger who he claims he thought was a deer.

The 48-year-old hunter faces an attempted murder charge after police say the shooting in Klippan, southern Sweden was not an accident.

Olle Rosdahl was on his morning run when he was shot in his side

Cops claim the footage recorded by the gun’s electric sights make it clear the target was a human being.

Olle Rosdahl, 75, was shot from 558 feet away while on a morning jog in November 2018.

The unidentified hunter claims he shot Rosdahl by accident and mistook him for a deer.

Rosdahl was running at about 4.30am and described the moment he was shot.

He said: “I heard a blast and fell to the ground. I was shrieking.

“What the hell kind of shooting is that?

“The shot went through me and if it had been two centimetres higher I would not have survived.”

The OAP was severely injured but managed to get to a neighbour’s house for help.

He was rushed to hospital where it was found out the bullet had gone straight through his side, exiting through his bottom without any of his vital organs being damaged.

The Norwegian gunman was reportedly on holiday to Sweden to hunt deer, wild boar and fox.

He was arrested later the same day and insists it was a shooting accident.

Cops charged him with attempted murder after viewing the footage, which shows the hunter aiming at a figure who buckles over when they are hit.

Prosecutor Ola Lavie told local media: “The evidence to a large extent consists of the film which shows what he was shooting at.

“If you look at the film, for me, it is obvious he is shooting a human being. I believe from the film it’s clear this is an intentional shooting.”

Police acknowledged they have not come up with a possible motive as to why the hunter shot the jogger.

Lavie added: “Rosdahl has no issues with anyone. He lives in the area and has no idea why anyone would want to shoot him.”

However, J. Andres Concha, the hunter’s lawyer, told local media: “He denies everything. It was a pure hunting accident and there was no intention of killing.”

Prosecutors added the Norwegian hunted deer and fox at night several times during the autumn, which is forbidden in Sweden.

He is also accused of using illegal ammunition and infrared sights which also require special permission.

It is unclear if the suspect regularly recorded his hunting exploits.
