Hunter and daughter shot and killed 'after being mistaken for deer'

A South Carolina man and his daughter were killed after they were mistaken for deer and were shot during a New Year's Day hunt.

The coroner, said the victims were Kim Drawdy, 30, and Mr. Drawdy's daughter Lauren, 9.

Mr. Harvey said the dad and daughter were shot with a shotgun.

"They were deer hunting, so they were using what we would call buckshot," he said.

"I was devastated," Mr. Drawdy's brother Benny said. "I couldn't believe it when I got the news. I said, 'It couldn't be.' It broke my heart and I couldn't believe it."

"They were just, you know, side by side," he said. "She loved him to death, and he loved her."
