Nevada Man Critical After Accidental Shooting - Lengthy Investigation Ensues

Local news

A possible accidental shooting left at 20-year-old man with a gunshot wound to the face and in critical condition, Reno police said in a news release Tuesday afternoon.
Police responded to a call at about 11:30 a.m. of a shooting at an apartment in the 3000 block of Lakeside Drive in south Reno.
Witnesses told police that one person was handling a gun when it was accidentally fired inside the apartment.
The person threw the gun on a table, which fired at a man's face. He was then taken to Renown Regional Medical Center, where he was listed in critical condition.


  1. Hmmm, its been less than 24 hours. Does that make it lengthy? They haven't even released the name of the person shot yet. And it seems like they haven't even talked to everyone present yet.

    "Right now, police are investigating the incident as an accidental shooting, but they are seeking a "person of interest," described as a Hispanic man in his 20's.
    Witnesses say he was seen leaving the area following the shooting."

    What would bring someone to flee after an accidental shooting?

  2. Throwing around a loaded gun? Negligence.

  3. I see no indication in the article about how long the investigation will be.
