ELMA, Wash. (AP) – The Fish and Wildlife Department says a hunter accidentally shot himself in the leg with a black powder pistol.

Officer Mark James was on patrol this weekend in a remote area south of Elma where he saw the man shooting out a window at grouse.

When the man saw the officer, he began to unload the gun inside of his vehicle and the .22 caliber pistol went off.

It is muzzleloader season and shooting grouse is legal, but shooting from inside a vehicle is illegal in Washington.
