Hunter shot a man in Oxford, game wardens say

Wardens continue to investigate a non-fatal hunting-related shooting in Oxford, the spokesman for the Maine Warden Service said Saturday evening.

Cpl. John MacDonald of the Maine Warden Service said a 21-year-old Paris man shot an Oxford man in his late 30s in the arm.

The two men were hunting in a party of four when the shooting occurred about 2 p.m., MacDonald said. The party was near the Oxford airport about a quarter of a mile into the woods off Plains Road.

Neither man was identified.

The victim was taken to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston with serious injuries to arms but is expected to survive, he said.

The shooting did not appear to be intentional, MacDonald said.

Oxford is located about seven miles southwest of Hebron, where a hunter shot and killed a woman on Oct. 28, the opening day of deer hunting season.

Robert R. Trundy, 38, of Hebron was charged with manslaughter in connection with the death of Karen Wrentzel, 34, of Hebron. He is free on $2,500 cash bail.
