Officials said a Florida man died Saturday morning following an apparent hunting accident in Ninety Six.

Greenwood County Coroner Sonny Cox identified the victim as Robert Arthur Iselin Jr., 51, of Jacksonville, Fla., and noted he died as a result of a gunshot wound to his torso area.

The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources is investigating the incident, which occurred in a wooded area off Carter Road in Ninety Six near S.C. Highway 60.

DNR officials said the shooting involved a group of five, including four Florida hunters, who visited the camp grounds Saturday morning.

Lucus J. Brickweg, 25, of Satellite Beach, Fla., was charged with criminal use of a firearm and no hunting license in connection with the shooting, according to DNR officials.

“The (shooter) in the stand heard something or saw something and fired,” he said. “He waited and didn’t see anyone or didn’t hear anything else. About 10 minutes later, he got down and went over and found his buddy was lying there.”
