Three people, two of whom were full-time missionaries for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints were hospitalized after an apparently accidental shooting in Klamath Falls, Oregon.
Six missionaries were visiting someone in their home when, according to the local news, “The owner of the home removed a gun from a display case to show it to them and the gun discharged.”
“A 9mm bullet went through the owner’s hand and hit a missionary on the right forearm. The bullet then careened off the man’s arm to his collarbone before hitting a female missionary in the abdomen.”
None of the injuries were life-threatening and all three are expected to make a full recovery.
The incident is still under investigation and as yet, no charges have been filed.
