A man was wounded during an accidental shooting this evening while preparing to go hunting hogs in Myakka today, the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office said.

According to a report, Floyd K. Oney II was invited by Jason C. Durrance to go hunting at his property at 37550 Clay Gully Road. Oney had a single action .45 revolver in a belt holster, slung over his shoulder.

Shortly before 7 p.m., the men had trouble starting the Kawasaki Mule they were intending to use, and when they raised the seat and leaned over the vehicle, the revolver fell from Oney's holster and discharged when it hit the ground, deputies said.

The round entered and exited through the left side of Oney's abdomen. He was assisted into the house and 911 was contacted.

Oney was flown to a local hospital; his condition was not immediately available, deputies said.
