A juvenile was killed in a hunting accident on Monday afternoon in Kanabec County.

The Kanabec County Sheriff’s Office says the accident happened just before 3:30 p.m. near Brunswick Township, which is just south of Mora.

The juvenile was pronounced dead on the scene. WCCO reports that the juvenile was a young boy, who was carrying his own weapon when it discharged and killed him.

Authorities said they are not releasing any more information at this time, including the juvenile’s name.

That makes a total of four hunting-related deaths in Minnesota since opening weekend.

Two hunters died in tree strand accidents and one of natural causes. Several others were injured in tree stand and firearms accidents.
