Hunter accidentally shoots, kills himself near Duvall
A hunter apparently died of an accidental shooting Saturday evening near Duvall.
According to a report from the King County Sheriff's Office, at about 9:20 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 30, a sheriff's deputy was conducting an area check of a trailhead near the 17000 block of the Northeast Duvall-Monroe Road. As he entered the trailhead, he found a man who was dead next to his vehicle, with an obvious gunshot wound to the chest.
It appeared that the man had accidentally shot himself, as he was putting away his hunting gear after a day of hunting.
The sheriff's office has not yet released the man's age and hometown, as officers were seeking to notify his family.
