COLCHESTER, Conn. (AP) - State environmental police say a 14-year-old boy riding an all-terrain vehicle in a state forest has been shot in the leg, apparently by a hunter.

A spokesman for the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection says the boy was struck in the leg by a pellet while riding the ATV in the Salmon River State Forest on Wednesday.

The boy was taken to the hospital.

Investigators talked to several hunters who were in the area at the time but could not determine who actually shot the boy.

The 6,000-acre forest is in Hebron, Marlborough, Colchester, East Haddam and East Hampton.
