Sheriff's officials are trying to determine who shot a Civil War re-enactor during a weekend skirmish in Virginia.

Isle of Wight County spokesman Don Robertson says Thomas Lord of
Suffolk was shot Saturday in the back of the shoulder while
portraying a Union soldier during a re-enactment. Lord was
hospitalized and later released.

Sheriff Charlie Phelps says Lord was shot with a .45-caliber
musket bullet that may have been fired from a pistol.

Phelps says re-enactors aren't supposed to use live ammunition
and normally don't.
