— Authorities say a Louisiana man has died one week after he was shot during an apparent hunting accident in south Arkansas.

Miller County Coroner Eddie Hawkins said 38-year-old Stacy Sewell of New Iberia, La., was pronounced dead Sunday night at a Texarkana, Texas, hospital.

The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission said Sewell was shot in the neck Dec. 29 with a .22-caliber magnum rifle.

Capt. Jackie Runion told the Texarkana Gazette that Sewell was hunting with a group near Mays Lake in Lafayette County.

Runion said a 17-year-old was shooting at a hog when he accidentally struck Sewell. Runion called the shooting a “freak accident” and said authorities don’t plan to charge or cite the teenager.
