No one will be charged after three accidental shootings at gun shows over the weekend. One of them was in Indianapolis.

Thousands packed the Indiana State Fairgrounds for the Indy 1500 Gun and Knife Show. While leaving, a 54-year-old man inadvertently shot himself in the hand.

At the Dixie Gun and knife show in Raleigh, N.C., a 12-gauge shotgun discharged as its owner unzipped its case during a pre-entry inspection. Three people, including the gun’s owner, were wounded.

In Medina, Ohio, a gun dealer was checking out a semi-automatic handgun when he accidentally pulled the trigger.

“Whenever they got it, it turned out the firearm was loaded somehow and when the individual went to clear it, the gun went off and hit his friend in the arm and in the leg,” said Jim Conrad, Medina Gun Show Promoter.

In all the instances, no one was seriously hurt.
