PORTLAND — A 29-year old man from Windham has been indicted on two felony charges — Class B aggravated assault and Class C reckless conduct — for allegedly shooting a New Hampshire man in the stomach while hunting on Nov. 4, 2011 in Casco.

A Cumberland County Superior Court grand jury indicted Travis Wood on Feb. 9 for the incident that occurred last fall in which 60-year-old Mark Mattson, of Portsmouth, N.H., was shot while he was target practicing near his family’s cottage on Thomas Pond approximately 300 yards from a logging road off Quaker Ridge Road and Libby Road. Wood was hunting with a partner.

Mattson was airlifted to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston where he was listed in critical condition for two days, before his condition was upgraded.

The investigation resulting in Wood’s indictments was conducted by the Maine Warden Service.
