BOSTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Authorities say a man who accidentally shot his brother while hunting could face criminal charges.

The incident happened around 5:30 p.m. Saturday in a cornfield near Grand River Avenue and Bell Road in Boston Township. Authorities said the men became separated while searching for a deer they shot and 29-year-old David Fron shot at what he thought was a deer, but instead hit his 28-year-old brother, Marcus Fron.

David Fron called 911 and helped his brother out of the field. Aero Med was eventually called and flew the men to Spectrum Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids.

Authorities say Marcus Fron is still in the hospital but is expected to make a full recovery.

Authorities are waiting for blood toxicology tests to come back but say everyone is being cooperative in the investigation.
