Almost a tragedy
BRADENTON, Fla. — Tragedy nearly struck a group of actors in Bradenton when authorities say a loaded gun was accidentally used during a rehearsal.
Bill Bordy, vice president of the Sarasota Senior Theater, was rehearsing a scene from John Steinbeck's "Of Mice and Men" Monday evening when he picked up a pistol he had borrowed from another cast member. Bordy pointed the loaded revolver at the head of another actor, Fred Kellerman, and pulled the trigger.
Bordy's aim was off and only grazed Kellerman's ear. He was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.
Just two hours after the shooting, the play went on as scheduled with another actor performing Kellerman's part.
No charges have been filed, but the shooting is still under investigation.
