Two members of a hunting club who were out looking for wild boar met their end Sunday when one marksman mistakenly shot his friend, then turned the rifle on himself.
The two were part of a group of five men who were out hunting wild boar in the mountains near Fukuchiyama City when Yoshinobu Nakashima, 67, accidentally shot fellow hunter Satoshi Miyake, 65, according to police.
One of the men who was nearby at the time said Nakashima seemed shocked, mumbling over the walkie-talkie they were carrying that he had accidentally shot Miyake. The four rushed to Miyake's side, while Nakashima went down the mountain to call for an ambulance. Minutes later, the remaining three members heard gunshots, and rushed over to find Nakashima with a a gunshot wound to the chest. Both Nakashima and Miyake were later confirmed dead by emergency officials.© News reports
