Police urge caution with guns after accidental shootings

One man was taken to a hospital to have a bullet removed from his foot and another suffered a minor graze wound in two gun accidents over the weekend, police said.

Both accidents happened Saturday evening. In Greenwood, a man accidentally shot his friend in the foot while looking at a handgun during a child’s birthday party. Near Acton, another man was grazed by a bullet fragment that ricocheted off a target at a professional shooting range during a firearm training course.

The accidental shootings occurred just weeks after multiple houses in a Greenwood subdivision were pierced by bullets being fired from a rural home.
