FLAGSTAFF, AZ - Authorities are investigating a shooting involving two brothers who were turkey hunting southeast of Flagstaff.
Arizona Game and Fish Department officials say the men from Surprise were pursuing and calling turkeys late Saturday when one of the men fired his 12-gauge shotgun about 25 yards away from his sibling.
Authorities say the victim was sitting against a tree and wearing camouflage clothes at the time.
He was shot in the shoulder, but the wounds weren't life threatening. He was taken to Flagstaff Medical Center for treatment.
The brothers' names haven't been released.
Officials say the Coconino County Attorney's Office will review the case to determine if charges will be filed.
Game and Fish spokeswoman Shelly Shepherd says Arizona has had 26 hunting accidents since 2007, including three fatalities.
