A Kansas hunter was accidentally shot and killed by a dog that stepped on a gun in the back of the truck they were in, according to police.

The victim hunter, who has not been identified, was in the front passenger seat of the truck late Saturday with a dog in the back and hunting equipment, including a shotgun.

And the American newspapers quoted the police as saying that “the dog of the owner of the truck accidentally stepped on the gun, which caused the shooting, and the bullet hit the hunter, who died of his wounds at the scene.”

It was not immediately clear if the dead man was the owner of the truck or if another person was with them in the driver’s seat at the time. It was also not clear if the truck was moving or stopped when the fisherman was shot in the back.

Police officials did not release any other details, including the identity of the victim, although some reports said he was 32 years old.
