Accidental shooting at Boise gun show injures two

Here's a news item from the Associated Press: BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Officials say a 23-year-old Mountain Home man who suffered a serious eye injury during a gun show Saturday is expected to regain his vision. The Ada County Sheriff's Office is investigating the discharge of a gun at the Fort Boise Gun Show. Police say a man picked up a gun that was part of a vendor's booth and it discharged into a display case. The bullet then struck two other guns, sending shrapnel into the air and injuring two people. Police have not identified the man with the eye injury, but authorities say they have not yet found any criminal violations and charges are not expected.
