Posted: Updated:

Police in Hopkinsville said they do not anticipate filing any charges in what they believe was an accidental shooting in a vehicle at a gun show Saturday afternoon.

Officers told WKDZ Radio that it happened at the Western Kentucky State Fairgrounds around 1:15 p.m.

Police said the incident involved a 20-year-old man and a 27-year-old man.

According to investigators, one of the men had purchased a 9mm Highpoint and had attempted to load it when the weapon discharged for some reason.

The bullet went through the man's hand and struck the other man in the buttocks, police said.

The men drove to Jennie Stuart Medical Center where they were treated for non-life-threatening gunshot wounds, police said.
