SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - A veteran California game warden is in the hospital with serious injuries after a shooting incident in a rural stretch of El Dorado County.

Warden Bob Pera was approaching two hunters just after dark Friday for a compliance check when a shot was fired. California Department of Fish and Game Lt. Patrick Foy says Pera was hit in the hand and bullet fragments entered his neck.

Foy says the circumstances surrounding the shooting aren't clear, and it isn't known whether Pera returned fire. But as he radioed for help, the hunters reached him and rendered aid to Pera.

The warden is receiving treatment at Sutter Roseville Hospital.

Foy says the incident is under investigation.
