The dog, whose type was not revealed, was on Saturday in the back of the vehicle, where there were “hunting equipment and a gun,” when he “stepped on the weapon, which led to the bullet going off,” according to the Samer County Sheriff’s Office in Kansas.
Authorities indicated that the victim, a 32-year-old man, was sitting next to the driver’s seat when he was shot.
He “died instantly of his injuries,” according to AFP.
The investigation is still ongoing, but, according to preliminary information, what happened is related to a “hunting accident,” according to what the police chief’s office confirmed.
The authorities did not reveal whether the victim was the owner of the dog, but the British newspaper “Express” said that the victim was the owner of the dog.
The newspaper pointed out that the dog was found asleep in the back seat when the rescue crew arrived, who found that the man had died before their arrival.
Weapons are widespread in the United States, especially in rural states, so that the number of weapons in circulation in the country exceeds the population.
The country witnesses many tragic accidents, which sometimes result from children shooting while playing with weapons.
