PRAIRIE VIEW, Ark. (AP) — A man in Logan County was left in critical condition after he was struck by a gunshot fired by a neighbor who was trying to shoot a stray cat.
The Logan County Sheriff's Office says 29-year-old Terry Osburn was sitting on his porch in the Prairie View community on Tuesday when the gunshot struck him in the face.
The Southwest Times Record reports that a 58-year-old neighbor was several hundred feet away and took aim at a stray cat with a .38-caliber handgun.
The neighbor's name wasn't released but deputies say he was arrested for suspicion of second-degree battery.
The sheriff's department says the men hadn't been arguing and that the shooting appears to have been accidental.
