Three hurt in accidental shooting at Raleigh gun show, police say

Three people were injured Saturday at a gun show in Raleigh, N.C., after a 12-gauge shotgun filled with birdshot accidentally discharged, authorities said.

Around 1:15 p.m., a 36-year-old man entered the Dixie Gun and Knife Show at the State Fairgrounds in Raleigh. The man, identified by authorities as Gary Lynn Wilson, took his encased shotgun to a security check. As he unfastened the case to be inspected, the gun accidentally went off, authorities said.

I want to emphasize that this was an accident, Joel Keith, chief of police for the North Carolina Department of Agriculture, said at a news conference.

Janet Hoover, 54, and Linwood Hester, 50, were taken to WakeMed Hospital where they are being treated. Hoover was injured on her right torso and Hester suffered injuries to his left hand, Keith told reporters.

Why are you spamming the site with all this broken? We get it, accidents happen with guns just like knives, cars, horses, hammers and many more things.

Oh and nail guns, they are VERY dangerous.

too late?

you mean to tell me that you predicted that someone that has a reasonable thought process would chime in to remind everyone that accidents happen with all of mans toys? wow, how long have you had this ability?

how is a gun accident basically any different from an accident involving an RC aircraft where 3 people are injured?
