Hunter dies after being shot in Montmorency Co.

ALBERT TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Police say a hunter has died after being accidentally shot in Montmorency County.

The Alpena News and the Petoskey News-Review report Michael Heisler was shot while hunting on Friday on state land in Albert Township, about 180 miles northwest of Detroit. His obituary says the 52-year-old was from St. Clair Township, near Port Huron.

Police say Heisler didn't return from hunting on the first day of Michigan's firearms deer hunting season. He was found shot in the leg.

In Alpena County on Sunday, authorities say a 29-year-old Posen woman was shot in the leg at an Alpena Township residence. Officials say she was wounded when a 57-year-old man was loading his rifle in the home as he prepared to go hunting and it discharged.


Mo. officer killed in freak accident while hunting

INDEPENDENCE, Mo. (AP) — A suburban Kansas City police officer has died after a freak accident in which a tree fell on him while he was riding his all-terrain vehicle during a weekend hunting trip.

Independence police say James Lockard was deer hunting in northwest Missouri on Saturday when the falling tree knocked him off the ATV. He was flown by helicopter to Heartland Regional Medical Center in St. Joseph, where he died Sunday.

Lockard had been with the Independence Police Department since July 2008. Friends and co-workers lined a road Monday where a hearse taking his body to a funeral home paused outside police headquarters.

He is survived by his wife, son and stepson.
