Another Stupid ND Incident
More proof that idiots, guns and booze don't mix.
Then there's that "AK-47" thing...
A 23-year old man was in serious condition Thursday at Kalispell Regional Medical Center after suffering a gunshot wound to the leg.
The man was accidentally shot by a friend who was showing off his new AK-47 rifle, said Flathead County Sheriff Mike Meehan.
The accident occurred at 11:55 p.m. Wednesday on Trumble Creek Road. The shooting victim was visiting his friend's home to show him a deer he had shot, Meehan said. While the two were talking about hunting and comparing firearms, the AK-47 went off and struck the man once in the leg.
Both men had been drinking, Meehan said.
The Evergreen Fire Department and Flathead County Sheriff's deputies responded to the incident.
