KIDRON, Ohio – A 17-year-old Amish boy was shot in the head while plowing a field Thursday morning in Kidron.

John Hershberger was struck with a .22 caliber bullet just after 9 a.m.

Investigators said it’s possible the stray bullet was fired by someone hunting squirrels and it just happened to come down on top of John’s head.

John was taken to Aultman Hospital in Canton and X-Rays showed the bullet lodged in his head, Hunter said.
