A Zionville man was flown to the Johnson City Medical Center early this morning after being shot in what was reported as an accidental shooting. The call came in shortly after 3:30 this morning to a Silverstone Road residence, the caller reporting that a 37-year old man suffered a rather large caliber gunshot wound to the upper chest, but that the victim was conscious, the man’s father applying pressure to the wound.  Watauga Deputies arrived at the 2221 Silverstone Road residence and cleared the scene for Zionville First Responders and Watauga Medics to come to the house, while other Zionville Firemen set up a landing zone near-by. WINGS Air Rescue landed and whisked the man away to the Johnson City Medical Center for treatment of the gunshot wound. Names and other details will come from the Watauga Sheriff’s Office, investigating the early morning shooting.
