BALDWIN COUNTY, AL (WALA) -

A father accidentally shot his son in the Stockton community Saturday morning, resulting in a "significant injury" for the son, according to the Baldwin County Sheriff's Office.

At approximately 9:30 a.m., Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the Upper Delta Wildlife Management Area in the Stockton community to investigate a shooting, according to the BCSO.

Once on scene, deputies learned that Thomas Catrett accidentally shot his son, Adam Catrett, in the leg during a hunting trip. This incident occurred when Thomas Catrett lost his footing while crossing a creek. 

Adam Catrett sustained a significant injury to his lower right leg as a result of the shooting, the Sheriff's Office says. He was stabilized by a friend who was hunting with him until medical personnel and deputies arrived.

The shooting victim was carried to a clear area before being transported, by a helicopter, to a nearby hospital.

His current condition is not known by BCSO, according to the Sheriff's Office.

Investigators with the BCSO are investigating the incident along with Officers of the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.
