DAVIESS CO, KY (WFIE) - Another accidental shooting in Western Kentucky Wednesday night, this time in Daviess County.

Sheriff Deputies say it happened around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday off Jack Hinton road.

Authorities say two juveniles were firing a shotgun at targets when a stray shot crossed the road and struck a man in a church parking lot. The victim was taken to OMHS with non-life threatening injuries.

Detective Morgan Palmiter with the Daviess County Sheriff's Office says, "At this point we're in contact with the prosecutor's office and the court designated worker's office and as we conduct interviews they'll be contacted and we'll determine what if any charges apply."

Deputies say their investigation will continue.

There were two accidental shootings last weekend in Webster and Hopkins Counties.

Both victims died.
