Raymond Singleton, 15, son of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Singleton, town of Grover, is in critical condition at the Medford hospital suffering from a gunshot wound which he received in a hunting accident about 3 p.m. Sunday.

A .22 caliber rifle bullet severed Raymond’s spinal column and lodged in his shoulder after perforating his left lung.

Raymond told Sheriff Herb Curran that he was out rabbit hunting with three companions in Jerry’s woods north of Perkinstown when the gun belonging to Donald Westrich, 14, accidently discharged. Donald was walking behind Raymond when the accident occurred.
