What do you think? Lawful gun owners are supposed to be responsible, that's what they keep telling us. The problem is many of them are not.The man who accidentally shot himself at Trader World Gun Shop has died of his injuries.
Around 5 p.m. on Monday North Charleston police responded to the gun shop's range located on Cross County Road.
The victim has been identified by the Charleston County Coroner's Office as 60-year-old Benny Patterson of North Charleston. He died of a gunshot wound to the chest.
Witnesses told police that the Patterson was shooting on a lane when he stopped to inspect the weapon. He turned the handgun toward himself and then it discharged, striking him.
