Trooper tied to hunting mishap
Norton woman shot in abdomen; he mistook her two dogs for deer
The hunter who shot a 66-year-old woman in Norton yesterday after apparently mistaking her for a deer is a Massachusetts state trooper, a State Police spokesman said this morning. The spokesman, David Procopio, confirmed in a brief phone interview that the hunter is an active trooper. State Police did not release the trooper’s name because he is not facing any criminal charges.
