US hiker accidentally shot and killed after hunter mistakes him for a bear

SUBLIMITY, Oregon (AP) - A member of the US Marine Corps Reserves was shot and killed in Oregon after authorities say a hunter mistook him for a bear. Christopher Ochoa, a 20-year-old from French Camp, California, and a friend were hiking through a field in Western Oregon on the way to Silver Creek Falls Park on Friday evening. Ochoa was wearing dark-coloured clothing when an Oregon man hunting for bear with his 12-year-old grandson saw something moving in the brush and fired one shot from a .270-calibre rifle, striking Ochoa, the Marion County Sheriff's Office said. The sheriff's office said the hunter, Gene Collier, 67, hasn't been charged and said the shooting appeared to be accidental but turned the case over to the local district attorney's office.
