TAHLEQUAH — Authorities in Cherokee County say a Tahlequah man has died in an apparent accidental shooting at a gun range.

Sheriff's Office Investigator James Brown says 44-year-old James Woolard died Tuesday at a gun range near Camp Gruber, southeast of Muskogee.

Brown tells a local newspaper that authorities believe Woolard accidentally shot himself and the investigation into his death continues. Authorities say Woolard went to the gun range for target practice.

His body was found after his wife called neighbors to check on him after Woolard failed to pick up the family's children.

A funeral is set for 1 p.m. Monday at Park Hill Baptist Church near Tahlequah.
