SARANAC, Mich. (AP) - A sheriff’s department says a hunter was badly wounded in western Michigan when he was accidentally shot by his brother.

The shooting happened Saturday in a rural area near the Ionia County village of Saranac. Officials say the 28-year-old Lowell man was taken by helicopter from the scene to a Grand Rapids hospital in serious but stable condition.

The sheriff’s department says the brothers were looking in dense corn for a deer they had shot and became separated. One man thought he saw the deer, so he fired again. He soon realized he had shot his brother and called 911.
