Gun vendor shoots woman at gun show in Ohio

SHARONVILLE, Ohio (AP) — A vendor checking a handgun at an Ohio gun show accidentally shot a woman setting up a display booth, police said.

Sharonville police said the man, 74, and woman, 65, were preparing their booths Friday afternoon ahead of the Bill Goodman Gun and Knife Show at the Sharonville Convention Center outside of Cincinnati.

Police said the man was examining a handgun and pulled back the top slide not realizing a round was in the chamber. The gun fired and the bullet ricocheted off the floor and struck the woman standing about 20 feet away in the leg.
