Victim Identified In Sandy Creek Fatal Hunting Accident

Authorities have identified the people involved in Thursday’s fatal hunting accident in Sandy Creek.
The investigation has revealed that on Thursday, November 24, at approximately 4:41 p.m., Kristopher D. Paro, 24, left his residence alone to go hunting in an area behind his residence, located at 310 Kehoe Road in the town of Sandy Creek.
It has been determined, Kristopher was up in a tree stand when he heard what he thought was a deer approximately 100 yards away.
Unaware to Kristopher, his father, Kevin D. Paro, 58, had entered the woods to hunt a short time earlier.
Kevin was mistaken for the deer, police said.
He was struck in the chest by the .270 rifle.
He was transported to Oswego Hospital where he was pronounced deceased.
A joint investigation is continuing at this hour with officers from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and the State Police Forensic Identification Unit.

I read this article last night. The son should be charged. Completely unacceptable. You put a round into someone's chest at 100 yds, seems suspicious. There is no excuse for something like that to happen.

No excuse at all for this one. How someone could mistake a human for a whitetail boggles my mind.

SunRise....SunSet

Also too consider is NY shooting hours are from Sunrise....Sunset. That day 4:32PM was sunset, so shot was fired after legal shooting hours on a dark, rainy day. We'll have to see what the investigation reveals.

I would like to know more facts but it does seem suspicious to me.

I don't know how you could mistake a human for anything. One of the most basic safety aspects of hunting is to positively identify your target. And my gosh, if you live right next to your dad who hunts wouldn't that inherently make you even more cautious???? Something is rotten in Denmark here or the guy is just plain not all that bright.

Something sure seems wrong here I agreed. I hate to judge thing since I was not there nor do I know any of the details. I can say for certain that its very sad to see such a terrible incident take place with the word " hunter" shoots father...very sad for the family. Prays to them...

This my problem with the issue.You don't shoot at sound,period.Turkey hunters get shot that way for that reason.That young man ruined his life with one trigger pull.No matter the outcome.
