Pennsylvania Gun Owner Gets Drunk and Shoots Four Friends Unintentionally - The Shotgun Discharged All By Itself

Daniel K. Clark, lawful and responsible gun owner

Local news reports

A shotgun discharged early Sunday while a Donora man was attempting to unload it, spraying four people on his front porch with birdshot, borough police said.

Three of the four victims were treated at Mon Valley Hospital for what police described as nonlife-threatening injuries.

Police did not identify the victims in court records filed in the arrest of Daniel K. Clark, the man accused of accidentally firing the 12-gauge shotgun.

Clark, 26, allegedly was drunk while handling the weapon outside his residence about 12:50 a.m.

Police initially were summoned there for a report of a woman who was shot in the leg.

Clark was charged with four counts of recklessly endangering another person and one count each of public drunkenness and disorderly conduct involving a hazardous offense.



    I guess the Gov. didn't talk to the many who did escape while the shooter was reloading. Those eyewitness accounts have been available online for anyone to read, for years. Facts that fly in the face of the Gov's false statements.

    1. Yes, but that's another post.

  2. Anon, I'm pretty sure that only one shot was negligently discharged. Which of course means that how many rounds it can hold is immaterial. I'm pretty sure if the drunkard had fired four shots, the charges would have been more serious than reckless endangerment.
    A birdshot round holds hundreds of pellets.

    1. I gave the address for the article I was commenting on. Maybe you should read it before making an idiotic comment.

    2. Yes, ss, this story is about another one of you lawful gun owners who really should not have had a right to own guns.
