Man seriously injured after shooting self in hunting accident

BEAVER TOWNSHIP  (3-5-16)—a California man suffered serious injuries after accidentally shooting himself while hunting Friday afternoon.

Larry Maxwell and his son, Cody, of Mitchell, were goose hunting southwest of Miner County in Beaver Township around 3:30 p.m., on a hunting preserve known as Nest Lake, when Maxwell stood his gun on its end, rested his two hands on top of the barrel and leaned on the gun, which then fired and shot through both of his hands, Miner County Sheriff Lanny Klinkhammer said.

Klinkhammer said the hand closest to the barrel had a hole straight through.  "You take a shotgun and it fires that close, and you're going to do a lot of damage," Klinkhammer said, adding that the gun "obviously" did not have its safety on.

Maxwell, in his 50s, was transported by helicopter to Sanford Hospital in Sioux Falls, and Klinkhammer said he was in surgery to repair his hands soon after being admitted to the hospital.

Beaver Township is located 16 miles west of Canova and 22 miles southwest of Howard.   Other responding agencies were Artesian/Letcher Search and Rescue, Mitchell Ambulance, the Sanborn County Sheriff's Office and Hanson County Sheriff's Office.

No other information is immediately available.

Lexington police investigate shooting on Shaker Run Road

LEXINGTON, Ky. (3-5-16) Lexington Police are still trying to piece together what lead up to a shooting Saturday afternoon. The shooting happened on Shaker Run Road off Polo Club Boulevard in the Hamburg area.

Police say a man was taken to the hospital, but they haven't released many other details.

"I was sitting in the living room and I heard the sirens, so I thought it was on the interstate but obviously it wasn't. I just saw cars go up the street," Paulette Livisay, who lives nearby, said.

Multiple Lexington Police cars filed down Shaker Run Road early Saturday afternoon.

"I just know I was in there watching the last UK ball game and I came out to get the mail and that's all going on," Linda Parker, who also lives nearby, said. "I never heard the cops pull up." She was surprised she didn't hear the commotion. "But when I came out and saw the tape I knew it had to be that house."

Police were responding to a shooting in the 2100 block of Shaker Run. It's an area neighbors say they've historically felt safe in.

When police arrived on scene, they say, the man who had been shot was responsive. He was taken to the hospital to be treated for injuries. Police are trying to figure out whether the shooting was intentional or not. We don't know a whole lot about what led up to Saturday's shooting. A glass door on the front of the home was completely shattered and a jacket lay out in the driveway. Neighbors told us a woman lived in the home with her child, but police have not said who was involved in the shooting. They're calling the investigation a 'special victim's case'.

"It's in every neighborhood. It doesn't matter what neighborhood," Parker said. "I just hate it because now it's getting too close to home."

Lexington Police say a person was taken downtown for questioning.
