Vermont hunter Timothy Bolognani allegedly commits suicide after accidentally shooting friend Benjamin Birch

A Vermont hunter allegedly shot himself after discovering that the deer he thought had just shot was in fact his friend. Timothy Bolagnani is reported to have allegedly shot himself after he and a friend realised that Bolagnani’s gun had killed fellow hunter Benjamin Birch.

The group were out hunting near Readsboro, Vermont on Saturday when Birch shot and injured a deer. The men began to track the animal. Subsequently, it’s believed that Bolognani fired at what he thought was the animal, but the target turned out to be Birch. Bolognani then allegedly shot himself.

The incident is the second tragedy to hit the Bolognani family in less than two years. Timothy Bolognani’s 18-year-old daughter Jessica reportedly died in January 2010 after she fell from a snowmobile and was crushed by another vehicle.
