Metrowest Daily News reports that a woman was injured in the leg yesterday by shrapnel after accidentally discharging her gun at the ground. The incident took place at Southborough Rod & Gun Club.
I have to admit, I was surprised to see that this piece of news was out of Hopkinton. The club is located just over the border of our town on Fruit Street. (Did it move, or was it always based in Hopkinton?)
Police responded to a call reporting that a person was injured by a 9mm handgun at 12:43 p.m, Bennett said. The woman, 33, was hurt by shrapnel from the bullet and concrete. She was treated at the scene and transported to UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester with non-life threatening injuries.
The woman was a Hopkinton resident. Click here for the full story.
