Deputies said [Rev. Michael Seth] Marsh was hunting coyotes and had an electronic coyote call near Edd Burgess Road Extension in Taylorsville. He was armed with a shotgun and a rifle.
The other man heard the call at around 5:50 p.m. and thought there were coyotes screaming in the area. That man, armed with a .223-caliber hunting rifle, said that he saw something brown and gray moving near a tree, according to a press release.
The man fired and struck Marsh several times in the chest. When the shooter realized he had shot Marsh, he called 911 and administered medical aid, the release said.
Sheriff Chris Bowman said the victim and the shooter knew each other, but were not hunting together. [more]
