EDINA — One hunter was killed by his grandfather during the opening weekend of the firearm deer season in Missouri.

KTVO-TV reports that 17-year-old Andrew Howe of rural Baring was killed around 1 p.m. Sunday in a rural area 175 miles northwest of St. Louis. Knox County Coroner Alan Rimer says it appears that Howe’s grandfather mistook the teen for a deer.
