Many questions still remain about the Hullet Wildlife area shooting that took place north of Clinton on Saturday.

OPP held a scheduled news conference in Clinton this afternoon, but just read from a prepared statement. The media was not allowed to ask questions.

Detective Inspector Chris Avery confirmed it was 70-year-old Don Frigo from Caledon East who was shot while riding horse back around 5:00pm, Saturday. Avery says the shooter approached Frigo and an unidentified woman while they were riding and fired shots. He says the woman managed to escape to a safe place. She sustained minor injuries.

A postmortem examination on Frigo is expected to take place in the coming days.

A number of OPP resources have been brought in to assist with the investigation including the West Region Emergency Response Team (ERT) and the West Region Forensic Identification Services (FIS).  At this time, the OPP continues to restrict access to the area where the shooting took place.

OPP say the investigation is continuing and further information will be provided when available.

Anyone with information about this incident is requested to contact the Huron County OPP immediately at 1-888-310-1122, or their nearest police authority.
