Two vendors at the Florida Gun Show were injured over the weekend by another vendor who fired a shot into the concrete floor, Orlando police reported today.
Neither man was seriously hurt, nor struck directly by the bullet.
According to the incident report, an Orlando police officer who was working off-duty at the gun show Saturday heard a gunshot about 100 feet from where he was walking about 1:40 p.m.
He then saw two men, identified as Mark Morrison of Cape Canaveral and Robert Earle of Longwood, bleeding, the report said.
Morrison and Earle were vendors with Jack Jenkins of Brandon, who told Orlando police he was looking at a Colt .45 semi-automatic handgun and noticed the hammer was cocked back.
A police report said Jenkins told officers he directed the muzzle toward the floor and pulled the trigger without ensuring the firearm was clear and safe.
The firearm then discharged.
Morrison suffered a laceration to the top of his left foot and Earle suffered a laceration to his left shin area. Both men were taken to area hospitals and treated.
