Posted: Updated:

PATERSON, Wash--  A Richland hunter is found dead with a single gunshot wound to his chest.   Police say they found the body of 56 year-old Dan Reberger on Whitcomb Island in Paterson.  At this time, the initial cause of death appears to be accidental.

One Benton County deputy says Reberger may have set the gun down and that's when it went off.

Neighbors say Reberger liked to go duck hunting.  They tell us the family recently moved to Richland roughly a year ago.  They also say he is survived by his wife Janine and two children, Kevin and Lynn.
