    A woman was hospitalized Tuesday after New Hampshire officials say she was shot by a hunter in Hopkinton.

    New Hampshire Department of Fish and Game officials said the victim was riding her mountain bike on Hall Road in Elm Brook Park when she heard a gunshot.

    The woman, who has not been identified, said she realized a short time later that she had been struck by a bullet.

    The victim was taken to Concord Hospital where she was treated and released for a non-life threatening injury.

    Authorities said Conservation Officers and Hopkinton Police were called to the scene where a 34-year-old man was interviewed. He was not identified.

    An initial investigation led Conservation Officers to believe that the suspect was shooting at a deer and failed to see the victim on her bike.

    The investigation is ongoing and potential charges against the shooter are undetermined.
