The Kings County Sheriff’s Office said a 48-year-old woman suffered a bullet wound Sunday following an accident at the Lemoore Sportsman’s Club shooting range.
Maria Ramos was airlifted to Community Regional Medical Center in Fresno after a .22-caliber rim-fire bullet hit the upper portion of her right leg. Deputies say she is currently in stable condition and expected to recover.
When deputies arrived, they learned that Ramos had placed a live .22-caliber bullet onto a table. The bullet reportedly fell off the table and onto the concrete, ultimately causing it to discharge toward the victim’s leg.
Deputies said it appeared that the victim was practicing good gun safety.
Is such a thing even possible? It's a new one on me. I suppose the woman "was practicing good gun safety" but bad bullet safety.
