MURRAY — A woman is going into surgery after an accidental shooting at a gun range in Murray on Saturday.

According to Murray Police Sgt. Ali Richmond, a man in his 30s accidentally discharged his weapon at TNT Guns and Range on Commerce drive. The bullet went through three shooting bays before going through both of a woman's legs and lodging into a wall.

"He had set his gun down after shooting it and had left it there for a period of time, forgot it was loaded and went to take it apart and ended up firing one round," Richmond said.

The victim, a woman in her 40s, had injuries to her legs that were not life-threatening but she will need surgery. Richmond said the woman was in good spirits.

"It was very clear, surveillance-wise and everything else, that it was accidental," said Richmond.

No charges have been issued.
