POTSDAM - A 22-year-old Parishville man is being treated in a Burlington, Vt., hospital for injuries he received shortly before 8 p.m. Friday when he was shot in the left arm and abdomen during a reported shooting sport activity on the Heath Road in the town of Parishville.

Deputies and investigators responded after receiving an initial report that a man was being transported to Canton-Potsdam Hospital for treatment of an apparently accidental gunshot wound. The man was identified as David Witherell of 3471 George St., Parishville. Witherell was later transferred to the Vermont Medical Center on Burlington, Vt., for treatment of his injuries.

The St. Lawrence County Sheriff’s Department said deputies and investigators are continuing their investigation into the incident reported at 7:49 p.m. Friday.
