KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Miami County Sheriff’s Office is enlisting the public’s help in obtaining footage of the area where a hunting incident occurred on Saturday.
At approximately 2:30 pm, authorities were called to 239th Street and Lookout Road on a call from a victim with a gunshot wound.
The injured party, who was hunting at the time, was in a wooded area within a state park.
They were flown by air ambulance to a local hospital and are reportedly in stable condition by the sheriff’s office.
After speaking to nearby hunters, authorities determined there was no threat to the public.
It is not known exactly where the shot came from, only that it was on state park property.
Due to the nature of the incident, the Kansas Department of Wildlife & Parks is assisting the sheriff’s office with the investigation.
The two agencies are asking the public that anyone with a trail camera near Hillsdale Point Access at Hillsdale Lake, or anywhere west of the access point, share their footage.
“Please review your video looking for someone with a firearm walking by,” the sheriff’s office wrote on Facebook.
They are asking for movies from noon to 3pm on Saturdays in the area circled in the image below.
