Posted: Updated:
DINWIDDIE, VA (WWBT) -

A ten-year-old boy is recovering, after getting hit by shotgun pellets in a hunting accident Monday afternoon, according to the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries.

The boy was dove hunting with his family on Courthouse Road, just north of McKenny Highway, in Dinwiddie. A gun fired and shotgun pellets somehow struck the boy's chest and shoulder.

He was rushed to Southside Regional Medical Center in Petersburg. His injuries aren't deadly. Family friends say the boy may even be well enough to head to school Tuesday.

The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries is investigating. There's no word whether any charges are pending.
