Franklin County shooting suspected of being accidental

    The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a shooting over the weekend.  It was reported around 10:43pm Sunday night.  Deputy Bryon Detlefsen says it occurred at a Campbell residence where a 35-year-old woman sustained a gunshot wound to the back.   It’s believed to have come from a small caliber rifle.

    Deputy Detlefsen says Hildreth Fire and Rescue responded for patient care.  A landing zone for a TriCity LifeNet medical helicopter was set-up at the Campbell baseball field to transport her to CHI Health Good Samaritan.   Her condition was not available on Tuesday but her wound was not considered life-threatening.   Hildreth is 20 miles from Campbell.

    Deputy Detlefsen says it’s suspected to have been an accidental shooting but the investigation is continuing.
