Hallsville Hunter Accidently Shoots, Kills Own Daughter

HALLSVILLE, Texas (CBSDFW.COM/AP) - Investigators say a hunter accidentally shot and killed his 11-year-old daughter while they were hunting near their East Texas hometown.

The Harrison County Sheriff's Office said Monday that it received multiple reports late Saturday afternoon of a hunting accident just east of Hallsville, Texas.

Callers said a Hallsville man accidentally shot his daughter, 11-year-old Daisy Grace Lynn George, while hunting.

An airlift was requested, but all helicopters were grounded by low clouds.

An ambulance transported the girl 12 miles to a Longview hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Grief counselors have been coordinated for faculty and students at the girl's school.
