A Hickman man was accidentally shot at close range Friday while hunting in Buffalo County, the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission said.

The hunter was shot around 8:45 a.m. along the Platte River.

He was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital in Kearney, where he was treated for injuries to his arm that were not life-threatening.

Investigators think the man was shot by another member of his hunting party, Game and Parks said.

The commission is currently investigating the incident.

In May, a 17-year-old was shot and killed while hunting in Hamilton County.
