No Charges to be Filed in Accidental Shooting in Garretson
Captain Paul Niedringhaus of the Minnehaha County Sheriff’s Office says his office was notified around 4:30 p.m. Sunday of the incident at the Garretson Sportsmen’s Club.
“A 32-year-old female was shooting a 9-millimeter handgun and was performing a drill that she was showing at a seminar in which she was shooting from her back and accidentally shot a round through her ankle.”
Niedringhaus says the woman’s foot apparently got in the way as she fired the 9-millimeter handgun while lying on her back.
She was treated at a Sioux Falls hospital for non-life-threatening injuries, and Niedringhaus says no charges are being filed.
