OKANOGAN, Wash. - Two men have been arrested for the murder of a western Washington man who was shot and killed while grouse hunting in early September.

Adam Jennings, 27, and John Jennings, 57, were arrested Tuesday in the killing of Michael Carrigan, 52, of Hoqiuam, Wash. Carrigan and another man were grouse hunting near Chesaw when Carrigan got out of their vehicle to shoot a grouse and was shot himself.

When deputies arrived they found Carrigan dead from a gunshot wound and interviewed several people at a nearby residence located about 100 yards from where Carrigan was shot. An autopsy later confirmed Carrigan was killed by a gunshot wound to the back.

Adam Jennings was arrested for first degree murder and unlawful possession of a firearm. John Jennings was arrest for first degree murder and delivery of a firearm to an ineligible person.
