Man Injured in Accidental Shooting at College of the Redwoods
A man was injured late yesterday afternoon in a firearm’s accident at the College of the Redwoods Firing Range.
According to an email forwarded to us the injury “was a self-inflicted, accidental discharge and occurred during an Advanced Officer training. The injury appears non-life-threatening; the injured officer was conscious and alert. There is no reason for worry.”
A second email from Ron Waters, Director of the Administration of Justice school at the college describes the incident to another individual.
The person who was injured was a retired annuitant with the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Department. He suffered a flesh wound to his leg and was treated at St. Joseph Hospital. Again, there is no cause for concern on campus.
