Accidental shooting injures two in Osceola County

OSCEOLA COUNTY — Two adults received medical treatment after an accidental shooting Saturday at a home in Marion.

According to Osceola County Undersheriff Justin Halladay, a man was cleaning a gun but did not realize there was a bullet in the chamber. The gun went off, shooting the man in the leg, then ricocheting to strike his sister in the lower leg.

Both individuals were treated for their injuries at Munson Healthcare Cadillac Hospital.

“As part of state protocol, police are called to investigate if a hospital treats gunshot wounds,” Halladay said. “This incident was found to be an accident and no charges will be filed. Luckily, their injuries were not serious.”
