SINGER, LA (KPLC-TV) – A Southwest Louisiana family is in mourning after a father shot and killed his son during a hunting accident this weekend.

Patrick Kyle Moore, 41, of Lake Charles was on a hunting adventure with his father on Saturday. The pair was hunting in a wooded area known to locals as the H&H Hunting Club, located six miles west of Singer.

According to Beauregard Parish Sheriff Deputies, Moore somehow ended up in his father's line of sight at around 6 p.m. Because the sunlight had gone away, Moore's father had limited visibility and could not see his son when he fired his gun.

Moore's father shot him in the chest.

Moore died from his injuries a short time later.

Investigators believe the incident was a tragic accident.

Moore is a graduate of Sam Houston High School in Moss Bluff and is described as an avid outdoorsman whom enjoyed hunting and fishing. An Army veteran, he served in Operation Dessert Storm as part of the 101st Airborne Division.

Moore leaves behind a wife, two sons, both of his parents, a brother and host of other relatives and friends.

FUNERAL SERVICES

Funeral services for Moore have been scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 7 at 1 p.m. at St. Theodore Catholic Church.

Visitation has been set for Monday from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Johnson Funeral Home. A scripture service and rosary will be held at 6 p.m.
