Hunter Targets Deer, Hits Kids

A hunter aiming for a deer in Michigan hit a home daycare center instead, grazing two young boys.

"We heard a loud shot, like an aeresol can was exploding or a lightbulb exploded," said Angela Jarvis, who owns the daycare in Cheboygan County.

They they found two boys, Connor and David, suffering from wounds to the chest and leg.

Police say the hunter was 400 yards away from the house, which is legal. But police say the hunter is also responsible for knowing what is around him or her.

Police say the hunter does live in the area and knew there was a house there. Once the investigation is complete, it's up to the prosecutor to determine if there will be any charges against her.

David and Connor were treated and released at the hospital.
