Man accidentally shoots gun in showroom of northern KY gun range; no charges filed FLORENCE, KY (FOX19) - A man going to fire rounds at a local gun range accidentally shot his gun in the showroom with several bystanders nearby. Now some are concerned about the way the range handled the incident. Chance Smith decided to stop by Shoot Point Blank on Monday in Florence to celebrate his 20th birthday. After he paid, he shopped around the showroom waiting for his turn on the range. That’s when he says he got a startling surprise. “I was asking the older gentleman how much 556 ammo was and we hear a firearm go off. It clearly was not in the range so everyone put their hands over their ears,” said Smith. Smith says he was near the gun case when he saw the man with the pistol accidentally fire a shot. “I didn’t know what was going on. I looked up and I seen him put his hands up. The general manager asked him how it happened and he said he was trying to lock the slide back and his finger slipped and hit the trigger,” said Smith. According to Florence police the man accidentally shot at a metal table or a similar object nearby and the bullet went into the floor.
