A boat carrying three duck hunters apparently capsized this morning on the Westport River near River Road section of Westport. As of this hour, all three men believed to be in the boat have been located.  Two of the men who were in the boat are deceased and a third has been rushed to Rhode Island Hospital.

The Bristol County District Attorney’s Office says the incident does not appear to be suspicious. However, State Troopers assigned to the DA’s office are investigating, along with a number of other agencies. Identities of the three victims are still being investigated at this time.

We’ll have more information as it becomes available
