MITCHELL — The hunter involved in an accidental hunting-related shooting on Tuesday, Oct. 20, has been identified.

According to a release from the Sheboygan County Sheriff's Office on Friday, the hunter turned himself in and met with investigators. No further information was released.

On Tuesday, officers were notified by an area hospital of a gunshot victim who reported to the emergency room.

Investigations revealed the incident took place in the Kettle Moraine State Forest area off of County Road V, about a half mile south of State Highway 67 in the town of Mitchell.

The victim, who sustained non-life-threatening injuries, said he was shot by a turkey hunter using bird shot pellets. The hunter offered to call for aid, but the victim declined help.

The victim reported the hunter immediately left the area in a red, late-model Toyota Tundra pick-up. 

The hunter is described as a male of Asian descent, approximately 40 years old, "huskier" build, approximately 5-to-6-foot tall, and was wearing camouflage clothing.
