MILLSBORO, Del. (AP) - Natural Resources Police in Delaware say a hunter was shot in the abdomen by an arrow shot by a bow hunter.

It happened about 5:45 p.m. Thursday on the edge of a farm field near Millsboro. Officers say a 54-year-old hunter in a tree stand shot an arrow from his compound bow.

Authorities say the arrow struck a 24-year-old hunter on the ground about 30 yards away.

Investigators say the hunter was flown to a hospital in Maryland, where he underwent surgery on Friday.

No charges have been filed.
