One man died and another was injured in a bizarre shooting incident following a dove hunt Sunday afternoon.

No charges have been filed as of Tuesday afternoon.

George Adams Jr., who resided in Georgia, died after being shot by his younger brother, Robert Adams, according to authorities. Shortly afterwards according to witnesses, Robert was shot by a gun discharged by his father, George Adams Sr. This occurred before witnesses on private property near Old Highway 45, close to the old BackPorch Restaurant.

Robert is being cared for at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson. He is expected to survive.

An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday for George Adams Jr.

The Kemper County sheriff’s department is investigating the incident.
