Hospital reports gun shot wound

An accidental gunshot wound was reported to the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office by Titus Regional Medical Center around 1 a.m. on Saturday, June 27.

Eli Hale had been showing a 9 mm Glock to a friend. He had removed the clip and the live round. Unbeknownst to him, the friend reloaded the weapon before handing it back. Mr. Hale shot his left hand, and the bullet also struck his friend’s dog. For more about this incident and others handled by law enforcement last week, see the July 2 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
