Hunter shot in the arm in Northumberland County

DALMATIA — A Dalmatia-area man was injured on the first day of deer season when he was accidentally shot in the arm by a fellow hunter. Game Commission officials say Jamie Gasiewski was in a hunting party participating in a deer drive on November 26th when he “got ahead of the drive.”

When a buck ran back through the line, another hunter fired a round and hit Gasiewski in his right arm. The shooter, Charles Erdman, of Herndon was charged with a summary offense of shooting at or causing injury to human beings.

Erdman could potentially lose his hunting license, the decision will be made by the law enforcement division of the game commission in Harrisburg. Gasiewski is expected to make a full recovery.
