Charges Expected In Gunfire At Gibraltar Trade Center
MOUNT CLEMENS (WWJ) – A 64-year-old St. Clair County man is expected to turn himself in this week to face a charge involving a gun that was accidentally fired at the Gibraltar Trade Center in Mount Clemens last week.
Macomb County Sheriff’s officials said it happened during the Gun & Knife Show when a customer, believing the gun was not loaded, accidentally fired the weapon. When the owner inspected the firearm, a second shot was fired, injuring three people, including a child.
All three were treated for minor scrapes at the scene.
The gun’s owner was banned from any future Gun & Knife Shows at Gibraltar.
If convicted, he faces two years in prison for careless discharge of a firearm causing injury. His name has not yet been released.
