From CNN (January 19, 2013) —
At least five people — three in North Carolina, one in Indiana and
one in Ohio — were injured after weapons went off at gun shows
Saturday, officials said, at a time when there’s been renewed
discussion about private gun sales at such shows.
The most casualties came at the Dixie Gun and Knife Show in Raleigh, North Carolina, where attendees bolted — with at least one woman wiping out in the frenetic scene — when gunfire rang out around 1p.m., as seen on video captured by CNN affiliate WRAL.
Police later explained that a a 36-year-old man from Wilmington, North Carolina, was unfastening the case of his 12-gauge shotgun on a table near the show entrance when it accidentally discharged. The man planned to sell the shotgun at the show.
The bird shot ended up injuring three people. One was a sheriff’s
deputy, who suffered a slight injury to his hand and was treated and released at a local hospital before returning immediately to work, said Joel Keith, chief of police of the North Carolina State Fair.
