A man who was shot by his brother, who had been trying to shoot a pig, has died.

Koua Vang, the 27-year-old victim, was hit in the face Saturday morning where he and his family were hanging out along Kinder Lane.

His brother was putting down a pig for the event, when the animal jerked, causing the rifle to go off a second time.

The second shot hit Vang, and he was rushed to the hospital in critical condition.

FOX40 has learned the man died Monday night.
