This Inverness man died early Saturday in a tragic deer hunting accident that also injured his teenage son.
John Hanlon was killed by a gunshot wound to the chest about 5:30 a.m. in East Dubuque, Ill., Jo Daviess County Sheriff's Office authorities said. He died at the scene.
The same gunshot also struck Hanlon's 15-year-old son, who was treated and released from Finley Hospital in Dubuque, Iowa, according to Illinois Department of Natural Resources spokeswoman Stacey Solano.
The Illinois Conservation police charged Kelly Jackson, 53, of East Dubuque, with misdemeanor reckless conduct because he discharged his weapon, a 12-gauge shotgun, an hour ahead of legal shooting hours, Solano said. Under IDNR rules, shooting cannot begin until 30 minutes before sunrise, which occurred shortly before 7 a.m. Saturday.
Everyone involved possessed the proper licenses, permits and permission to be on the property, located near U.S. Highway 20 and Dunn Road, Solano said.
Authorities said Jackson and Hanlon weren't in the same hunting party, but wouldn't disclose the distance between the two when the shooting occurred, citing an active investigation.
Jo Daviess County Sheriff Kevin Turner said his office is assisting IDNR in the investigation and that documents would be forwarded to the state's attorney's office to determine if additional charges are warranted.
The Menominee-Dunleith Fire Department, Jo Daviess County Sheriff's Office, East Dubuque police, Illinois State Police and Illinois Conservation police responded to the 911 call.
Hanlon worked at Deloitte for more than 16 years and was an international tax partner for the last 12 years. He graduated from the University of Illinois and received a master's degree in taxation from DePaul University.
