A Soldotna teen died yesterday during a hunting accident near Mile 98 of the Sterling Highway.
SoHi grad Jonathan Granger was 19 years old, hunting alone off Isaak Road. He called his family a little before 2:30pm, saying he’d been hurt when something went wrong.
The family called paramedics at 2:46pm, who found Granger has sustained a gunshot wound to the torso.
Granger was coherent when talking to paramedics, but died at the scene, without describing how the incident happened.
