A Dawson Springs Road man was hospitalized after an accidental shooting incident at his home Thursday afternoon.
Christian County Sheriff Livy Leavell says Granville “Butch” Thompson was pulling a rifle out of his safe just before 4:30 when something happened to cause another rifle inside to discharge several times.
Sheriff Leavell says it appears a fragment from one of the bullets lodged in Thompson’s temple, but did not enter his skull. Leavell says Thompson was talking with responders and that his injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.
Thompson was taken by ambulance to Jennie Stuart Medical Center.
