Bowler Shoots Himself When Concealed Gun Goes Off

By: Shaylin Clark - May 15, 2013

A Florida man was wounded on Tuesday when the pistol he was carrying accidentally discharged while he was bowling.

The man was bowling at the Jupiter Lanes Bowling Alley in Jupiter, Florida. Witnesses say that the gun, which was apparently in his pocket, was struck by the ball during the man’s backswing. The bullet grazed the man’s leg before lodging in the floor.

According to local authorities the man, whose name has not yet been released, owned the firearm legally and had a license to carry it concealed. As such, they do not expect to file charges in the incident.
