Texas Gun Shop Bullet Goes Through Wall, 1 Hurt

December 8, 2011

Authorities say a man at a business next to a South Texas gun shop has suffered a facial wound after a bullet was accidentally fired through the shared wall.

Jourdanton police Chief Eric Kaiser says a worker at The Bullet Hole was unloading a pistol Tuesday afternoon when the gun discharged.

Police say an instructor at a neighboring gymnastics club who was struck was transported to a San Antonio hospital. A University Hospital spokeswoman told The Associated Press that Joseph Gonzalez was in stable condition Wednesday.

Police are trying to determine whether the victim was hit by the ricocheting bullet, a fragment or other debris.

Police do not expect to charge the gun shop worker.
