The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission announced today that an investigation into a hunting fatality that occurred in Hyde County on Jan. 25 concluded that “the incident was an unforeseeable accident and that everything possible was done to save the [victim’s] life.”

On Jan. 25, Brandon Marshall of Engelhard was fatally wounded while hunting with family at a waterfowl impoundment in Hyde County. Marshall was accidently shot in the leg while in a duck blind with his son. Marshall’s brother, who was in a duck blind next to the victim and his son, offered assistance until N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission officers and first responders arrived on the scene.

The update released on Jan. 26 described Marshall “as a very experienced hunter [who] shared a passion for hunting with his family, friends and others by guiding hunts and mentoring others with an interest in outdoor recreation.”
