A woman practicing shooting at a local firing range apparently shot herself accidentally this afternoon, according to police.
The victim was rushed to Sturdy Memorial Hospital in Attleboro.
Three firefighters were treating the woman in the back of the ambulance — an indication the injuries likely are serious, police said.
The incident was reported about 2 p.m. at the American Firearms School in the industrial park off John Dietsch Boulevard.
Witnesses said they speculate the woman’s gun may have jammed.
The woman appeared to fall backward, they said.
After the mishap, the range officer ordered everyone to stop firing and evacuate the shooting range, the witnesses added.
