The Coshocton County Sheriff's Office says a hunter died after he apparently shot himself accidently.
The sheriff's office said in a news release that deputies and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources responded to the shooting about 10:30 a.m. Monday and found the hunter in his tree stand on his property. He was pronounced dead at the scene from an accidental gunshot wound.
Sheriff Tim Rogers told the Coshocton Tribune that Pace was alone and in the tree stand, about 20 feet off the ground. He told the newspaper that Pace had a single gunshot wound to the head from a handgun. He was discovered by a friend.
