On the opening day of squirrel hunting season, a 55-year-old man was shot by his brother at a state park in Webster County, officials said.

The man was shot in the upper body by his brother, 50, while they were hunting at the Brushy Creek State Recreation Area. Officials believe the shooting was an accident.

In a statement Tuesday, the Iowa Department of Natural Resources said the man was taken to a Webster City hospital before he was transferred to a Des Moines hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The brothers, both of Webster City, were hunting with a party of four people Saturday on the opening day of squirrel hunting season, which ends Jan. 31.

Conservation officers were investigating, but the agency initially believed the shooting to be an accident. No charges have been filed.
