Man Injured In Ark. Hunting Accident Dies In Texas Hospital

LEWISVILLE, Ark. (January 7, 2013)—Stacy Sewell, 38, of Iberia, La., has died in a Texas hospital one week after he was shot in a hunting accident in southern Arkansas.

Miller County Coroner Eddie Hawkins said Sewell was pronounced dead Sunday night at a hospital in Texarkana.

The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission said Sewell was shot in the neck on Dec. 29 with a .22-caliber magnum rifle while hunting with a group near Mays Lake in Lafayette County.

Runion says a 17-year-old was firing at a hog when he accidentally shot Sewell.

Runion called the shooting a "freak accident" and said authorities don't plan to charge or cite the teenager.
