Michael L Deel and his wife, Michelle, were doing the proper gun owner thing – attending a firearm safety class.
But on Saturday the couple must not have gotten to the part about accidentally shooting – because that happened. The instructor left the room and heard the sound of a gunshot only to return to the room to find Michael with a gunshot wound to the hand and his wife a wound to her leg. Michael had accidentally fired the gun and a single bullet did the damage. There were five other people in the room with the gun went off. No one else was hurt.
Deel called the incident a “stupid accident”. No word if he was given a failing grade for the class.
