Local news reports
A Dayton woman was hospitalized last week after a new gun her son was showing his father accidentally discharged.
Lyon County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Bryan Parsons reported a 26-year-old man was showing a new gun to his father at about 3:15 p.m. on Thursday, and, as he was removing it from a holster, it discharged and hit his mother in the leg.
On Friday, he said the investigation was still continuing, but to that point the sheriff’s office had found no evidence to show it was “anything but an accident,” so no charges had been filed.
