Officials from the Greenwood County Sheriff Office said the accident happened about 9 a.m. on Saturday in a remote section of the county used by hunters.

A report issued by the Greenwood County Coroner revealed that Robert Iselin Jr. of Jacksonville, 51, died when he was shot once in the chest by a single gunshot from a 30-06 high-powered rifle.

The bullet struck him on the right side of his body and he died at the scene.

Iselin was shot by a fellow hunter, Lucas Brickweg of Satellite Beach, 25.

Apparently the men were part of a group of five including four from Florida who were hunting wild hogs.

Brickweg told investigators he heard something from his tree stand and fired and then realized he had accidentally shot Iselin.

Brickweg was arrested and charged with criminal use of a firearm and not having a hunting license.

The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources continues to investigate the shooting.
