A man was accidentally shot at a Manatee gun range by his fianceé this afternoon, Manatee County deputies said.
According to a report, Jared Gould, 33, and Lauren Shaw, 28, were at Logue Road Gun Range, 1805 Logue Road, with a group of people firing weapons about 1:40 p.m.
Shaw was firing a Taurus Model 1911 .45 when a casing ejected and landed inside her shirt. She tried to keep the hot casing off of her by bending over and trying to swat the casing out, but when she did, she unknowingly pointed the gun down at Gould's leg and accidentally fired another round.
The round struck Gould in his right leg in the upper thigh and exited lower down his thigh. He received immediate treatment and was transported to Manatee Memorial Hospital for further treatment.
His wound is not life-threatening and he was expected to be discharged later today.
