A Houston-area teenager whose father accidentally shot him while hunting in Waller County was scheduled for leg surgery Thursday afternoon, officials said.

The accident happened about 5:45 p.m. Wednesday, as darkness was falling on the 10-acre tract where the two were hunting in separate blinds, Davis said.

They were preparing to leave when the father saw what he thought was a deer and shot his son from a distance of about 150 to 200 yards, Davis said.
