LIVONIA, Mich. (AP) – A Detroit-area firearms instructor has accidentally shot and wounded a man attending a gun training class.
Livonia Police Detective Capt. Robert Nenciarini tells our media partners at MLive.com Thursday that the gun was fired Saturday at a gun range west of Detroit.
Nenciarini says the 44-year-old instructor was conducting a class for people seeking concealed pistol licenses when he “pulled his gun out of its holster, pointed it at the door separating the two classrooms and fired a round.”
A 39-year-old Detroit man in another classroom was struck in both legs.
The instructor was not arrested, but could face charges in the shooting.
