BLOOMINGTON — Two men were injured in an accidental shooting Saturday morning at the ECA Gun and Knife Show at Bloomington’s Sale Barn.
An attendee at the show was handling a mini-14 semiautomatic rifle at about 11:15 a.m. As the patron was laying the rifle back on a vendor table, the gun accidentally discharged, said McLean County Sheriff Mike Emery. [...]
The sheriff said one man suffered a chest wound. Details of the second person’s injuries were not immediately available.

That was today’s Quickie. Will you still respect me in the morning?
