SAVANNAH, Ga. – Authorities say a U.S. man is recovering after accidentally shooting himself in the leg at a gun show.
Police say 26-year-old Charles Lake was leaving the Georgia gun show Sunday when he discharged a round into his leg while reloading his pistol.
Savannah-Chatham police spokesman Julian Miller says Lake bought the pistol at the gun show Saturday and had returned Sunday to buy another.
Police say he was reloading the pistol in the parking lot because loaded guns weren't allowed inside the gun show.
The Savannah Morning News reports Lake's injury was not considered life-threatening.
