Dealer accidentally shoots man at Ohio gun showJanuary 19, 2013 @ 4:30 pm
MEDINA, Ohio (AP) - Authorities say an accidental shooting at an Ohio gun show has left one man wounded.
Police in Medina (meh-DEYE'-nuh) say a gun dealer was checking out a semi-automatic handgun he'd bought Saturday when he accidentally pulled the trigger.
Police Chief Pat Berarducci (BEHR'-uh-doo-chee) says it appears the bullet struck the floor, then a longtime friend of the gun dealer. The man was wounded in the arm and leg.
Berarducci says the man was taken by helicopter to a Cleveland hospital. His condition isn't known.
Police say the gun's magazine had been removed from the firearm but one round remained in the chamber.
Medina is about 30 miles south of Cleveland.
