KING GEORGE, Va. (AP) - Conservation officers are investigating the fatal shooting of a deer hunter by another hunter in King George County.
Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries spokeswoman Julia Dixon says 27-year-old Carrie L. Loving of Fredericksburg was standing near another hunter’s truck when she was shot.
Dixon says 28-year-old Forrest D. Matthews Jr. of Fredericksburg shot and killed a deer and a single buckshot pellet hit Loving in the head. She later died at Mary Washington Hospital.
Loving was wearing blaze orange. She was hunting with members of a hunt club when the shooting occurred Saturday morning on private property in the Caledon area.
