DATELINE KEENE, CHESHIRE COUNTY, NEW HAMPSHIRE
The two designated as safety officers for the 2019 annual Cheshire County Republican Shoot were shot at a shooting range run by the Shooting Sports Education Foundation.
Two safety officers went to the hospital Sunday with gunshot wounds after one accidentally fired a gun at the other at an event at the shooting range on Ferry Brook Road, Keene police said.
One safety officer apparently attempted to give a demonstration using a dummy weapon, Zamore said, but grabbed a real firearm by mistake. The man fired the gun while his hand was in front of it, according to Zamore, and the bullet traveled through his hand and into the abdomen of a second safety officer.
