    Brother shot in car after hunt

    WEARE – A Merrimack man was accidentally shot by his brother Friday following a morning of hunting.

    Weare police said Josiah Dean, 18, of 6 Jade Road, shot his brother, Justin Dean, 20, of the same address, in the back around 10:30 a.m. while the two men and a third brother were driving near South Stark Highway and Short Street in Weare.

    Justin Dean was in the front passenger seat and Josiah Dean was in the back unloading a revolver when the gun discharged, police said.

    The bullet went through the seat and into Justin Dean's back, police said.

    The pair had apparently spent the morning hunting in New Boston, police said.

    There was no exit wound, and Justin Dean was conscious when emergency workers arrived, Weare police Sgt. Bob Peterson said.

    Justin Dean was transported to Elliot Hospital in Manchester. A spokeswoman for the hospital said Dean was treated and transferred to Catholic Medical Center in Manchester.

    Hospital officials confirmed Dean underwent surgery at the hospital. He was listed in fair condition Friday night.

    Peterson said a revolver is not typically used as a primary weapon for hunting, but that it's not unusual for people to bring along if an animal is injured and needs to be killed humanely.

    He said there is no information to indicate the shooting was on purpose. Police are continuing to investigate.

    What an idiot, why was he pointing his gun at his brother's back and why did he make a revolver discharge when he was unloading it?

    the scenario i imagine was he had a bad trigger finger reflex and was going to point the gun upward to remove the bullets out of the wheel when it went off, or if they hit a bump..

    either that, or the bastard did it on purpose

    Most revolvers swing out, so there would be no reason to even have a bullet ready to go. Even my SAA clone you have to pull it back to half-cocked and it won't fire. Hopefully the guy doesn't have any long-term effects from it and makes a full recovery.

    It's obvious the guy had his finger on the trigger no matter what the scenario was.

    i'm assuming, he was flipping the weapon vertically with the wheel still engaged.
