A boy was injured in a hunting accident Monday morning, according to Washington County Sheriff’s Office (WCSO) officials.

A WCSO spokesperson told News Channel 11 that two juveniles had been hunting on private property at the 1700 block of Boones Creek Road when the incident occurred around 7:30 a.m.

Washington County deputies learned that as the boy was climbing into a tree stand, his rifle discharged and injured him. A Johnson City/Washington County EMS transported him to a nearby hospital due to non-life-threatening injuries.

The WCSO said the TWRA leads the investigation. Further information has not been released at this time.
