A man in a Mendon restaurant accidentally shot himself and the person he was eating with on Saturday.
The Monroe County Sheriff's department said a man was eating at the Cottage Hotel of Mendon at the corner of Routes 64 and 251 when his gun went off accidentally.
He ended up shooting himself in the hand and ankle and also striking one of the people he was eating with in the ankle as well. So far, no charges are being filed.
yep I was there. There was a family with a toddler and a newborn sitting closest to him. Another family had just sat down. My friend and I had just placed our orders. Really? Do you need a gun to eat at the Cottage in Mendon. This isn't the wild wild west. I do want to say that the staff were very quick to respond to the incident. Our waiter acted fast and provided first aid assistance quickly. The bullet actually went through the hand...his leg...and then hit the foot of the man next to him. Please leave your guns home when eating in a restaurant...or at least have the safety on and don't have a bullet in the chamber. Oh, and using common sense helps.
