Accidental Shooting in Ohio - Gun Owner Arrested

Local news reports
Police in northeast Ohio say a man accidentally shot his father in the leg while trying to show a gun to someone else and render it safe. 

The Vindicator in Youngstown reports the semi-automatic gun discharged in their garage in suburban Boardman on Saturday night, shortly after the family finished distributing candy to trick-or-treaters. The 51-year-old man who was shot was taken to a medical center's trauma unit with a thigh injury that wasn't believed to be life-threatening.

Police said his 24-year-old son was charged with misdemeanor negligent assault and was being interviewed by authorities.
I'm surprised they arrested him. Is he black? Did he lie to the police and hide the gun? What gives?

  1. What is it with you and race? This has to be deeper than some political position. Your resentment is personal.
