It wasn't quite the "gunfight at the OK Corral," but a member of the Tombstone Vigilantes gunfight reenactment group accidentally shot another member of the Vigilantes Sunday afternoon, according to the Cochise County Sheriff's Office.
One of the Vigilantes arrived late and did not have his gun properly inspected. He then accidentally shot another member of the Vigilantes. The man was shot in the upper groin area sometime around 2 p.m. and had to be airlifted to the hospital, said CCSO spokeswoman Carol Capas.
According to an update from the Tombstone Marshal's Office, actors Tom Carter and victim Ken Curtis were facing off against each other when Carter fired his gun. Curtis fell to the ground after being hit by a live round.
Curtis was flown to Banner-University Medical Center to have the bullet removed.
Why do these people always seem to get shot in the groin? Is that where everybody aims?
When the shooter's gun was inspected it was found that all six rounds had been live with five expended, and one live round in the chamber.
Two nearby businesses were also hit, as well as a bystander, but only by shrapnel.
Gee I guess guns are still dangerous even when you think you have rendered them safe.
I mean besides most people?
