Man accidentally shoots self at Pinellas Park firing range

PINELLAS PARK — A man accidentally shot himself in the leg while re-holstering his gun at a firing range on Sunday afternoon, the Pinellas Park Police Department said.

The incident happened around 2:30 p.m. at the Wyoming Antelope Club, 3700 126th St. North, records show.

Investigators said a private security company had leased part of the range to conduct “agency qualifications.” The man suffered a bullet wound to the leg and was taken to Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg. His injuries were not life-threatening, records said.
