Accidental shooting at Arkansas gun show

July 28, 2013|by KY3 News staff

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. --  Police in Arkansas are investigating an accidental shooting at a Lions Club Gun Show in Hot Springs, Arkansas.

Authorities say when Charles Pike picked-up a gun off the table, the weapon fired, hitting him in the hand. The bullet then ricocheted off the floor and grazed another man.

Organizers say gun shows follow strict safety measures for both visitors and vendors, and they're unsure how exactly the shooting happened.

"And for some reason, we don't know, this particular weapon had a round in it and had an accidental discharge," explained Larry Loudon, the gun show chairman.

The two men who were shot are said to have non-life threatening injuries.
   
No word on if charges will be filed. The show went on as scheduled on Sunday.
