WASHINGTON MAN SHOT WITH HUNTING ARROW BY DAUGHTER
May 26, 2011
A modern compound hunting bow and arrow.
(MASON COUNTY, WA) -- When news of a shooting hits the media one most always assumes the shooting is with a firearm.
But sometimes people are shot with a deadly weapon that pre date the invention of gun powder.
A 35-year old man from the small community of Tahuya, Washington was airlifted to a hospital Wednesday with a serious injury after being shot in the torso with a hunting arrow.
Tahuya is located in unincorporated Mason County.
The arrow was fired from a bow that was held and aimed by his teenage daughter, said the Mason County sheriff’s office.
Authorities say the shooting happened about 8:00 pm when the 15-year-old daughter became angry because her father took her cell phone away for discipline.
And after shooting him the girl allegedly refused to let her father use the phone, which forced him to crawl to a neighbor's home to phone 911.
The girl ran from the scene after the shooting and took the bow and a few dozen arrows with her. She was captured in some woods behind her home by officers a short time later.
