BURLEY, Idaho (AP) — Officials in Cassia County say a 10-year-old Burley girl was accidentally shot during a family hunting trip in south-central Idaho.

The sheriff’s office reports the family called 911 at about 10 a.m. Sunday. The girl was taken by ambulance to the hospital in Rupert and later flown to Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City.

Officials did not release her condition.

Chief Deputy George Warrell says the sheriff’s office investigated the shooting and ruled it was accidental.
