Waller County officials say a 16-year-old boy was accidentally shot by his father during a hunting trip.

The incident happened between 6 and 7pm Wednesday in northeast Waller County. Waller County Sheriff's Office spokesperson Craig Davis says a father and son were hunting deer on their property along Haas Road. The two were apparently at opposite ends of the property when the father saw something moving in a semi-wooded area, thought it was a deer and took a shot.

Davis says the son was shot in the upper leg/groin area.

The boy was transported via LifeFlight to Memorial Hermann. He was conscious and alert.

Officials say the shooting appears to be an accident.
