A dog accidentally shot and killed a man during a hunting trip in southern Kansas over the weekend.

Deputies from the Sumner County Sheriff’s Office were called for a shooting in the area of 80th Street South and River Road, northwest of Geuda Springs, close to the Oklahoma state line at around 9:47 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 21. When officers responded to the scene, they found the victim, a 32-year-old man from Wichita, suffering from a gunshot wound to the back. The officers performed CPR to revive the man. However, despite their efforts, the man was pronounced dead at the scene, MSN reported.

According to the Sumner County Sheriff’s Office, the victim was sitting in the front passenger seat of a pickup truck that was carrying hunting gear and a rifle in the backseat of the vehicle.

A preliminary investigation conducted by the investigating officers concluded that a dog, which belongs to the owner of the vehicle, stepped on the rifle in the backseat of the vehicle. This caused the weapon to fire a single round which shot the passenger who was sitting in the passenger seat of the vehicle, BNO News reported.

Following the incident, the sheriff’s office did not release any other information, including the victim’s name, details regarding whether anyone else was in the truck, or if the truck was moving at the time of the accident.

The agencies involved in the investigation are the Sumner County Sheriff’s Office, the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks, and Wellington Fire and EMS.

In a similar but unrelated incident, a 19-year-old boy died months after he was allegedly shot by his Uber driver in Hollywood, Florida, as previously reported.

Miles McGlashan, 19, was on his way to visit his grandparents on Nov. 9, 2022, when the shooting happened. When McGlashan exited the uber car on Park Road across from TY Park in Hollywood, he apparently slammed the door. Soon after, the accused, 51-year-old Christopher Bernadel, got out and an argument apparently ensued between the two after which Bernadel pulled out a gun and shot McGlashan.

After undergoing treatment at Memorial Regional Hospital for over 71 days, he was taken off the machine on Thursday, Jan. 19, and died Thursday afternoon at 3:30 p.m.

When questioned, the Uber driver claimed self-defense. According to Hollywood police, an argument ensued between the duo after McGlashan asked the Uber driver to drop him off at a different location nearby. When the Uber driver refused, the teen allegedly attacked the driver, who then shot him. However, the victim's family members say that didn’t happen.

According to acquaintances of Bernadel, he has had a history of domestic issues with a former wife and a recent ex-girlfriend, and a road rage incident that reportedly made national television.
