Hunter accidentally shoots girlfriend

A LaFayette man accidentally shot his girlfriend while he was hunting deer. Matthew Tyler Webb told police he heard rustling and saw movement, but he didn’t know what it was, so he fired his rifle. He immediately heard a scream 15 yards away and found his girlfriend, Audrey Mayo, bleeding from her leg. Webb took off his shirt and wrapped it around the wound before calling 911. Officers say the woman passed out within minutes and may have gone into shock. She was flown to Erlanger where she was listed in critical condition on Friday. Her boyfriend may be charged with hunting under the influence. He reportedly told investigators he took several illegal drugs - before he went hunting.
