LIBERTY -Authorities are investigating a shooting that caused the death of a teenager Monday night on Hurricane Ridge Road, 14 miles east of here.
Joshua Mullins, 18, of Yosemite was pronounced dead at 11:15 p.m. at the scene by Casey Coroner Tommy Clark. Mullins apparently died of a gunshot wound to the lower back and hip area, according to Clark.
The death was caused by a .306-caliber rifle, used for deer hunting, that apparently went off as Mullins attempted to get out of a car driven by Chris Carman of Danville, according to state police Detective George Atwood. The gun was found at the scene.
Atwood said Mullins was in the car with Carman, and Roger and Troy Carman, both of Yosemite, when the car stopped at the Roger Carman residence on Hurricane Ridge Road.
