A Bend man was accidentally shot in the back of the leg Sunday morning while duck hunting near Sunriver.

Colton Nye, 21, was walking in front of Jesse Derrick, 22, also of Bend, when Derrick’s 12-gauge shotgun discharged a single round at close range, officials said in a news release.

The two were duck hunting along an established trail parallel to the Deschutes River. Nye was in the lead as the two walked single file. He crossed over a downed tree and continued up the pathway, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

When Derrick tried to cross the same tree, the shotgun went off striking Nye in the back of his left leg, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
