Florida Panhandle authorities are investigating after a teenager shot herself in the leg while hunting.
 
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesman Stan Kirkland says Andrea Wright was boarding a 4-wheeler Sunday morning when her shotgun went off.

 
Kirkland tells The News Herald that the gun was loaded with buckshot and the 16-year-old was struck in the leg.
 
The teen was airlifted to a Pensacola hospital, where she was in serious condition Monday afternoon.
 
Kirkland says the teen had been hunting with an uncle. It wasn't clear if she had taken a required hunter safety course or had a hunting license.
