A Texas gun show attendee was minding her own business Saturday when she was suddenly struck in the foot with a bullet. Per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the incident occurred indoors before 5 p.m. at the Will Rogers complex, where the weekend's show touts some 1,000 exhibitors eager to buy, sell, or trade. Fort Worth police say someone accidentally discharged a gun that was in apparent violation of the show's "no loaded firearms" rule. The woman was taken to an area hospital, where police say she was treated for injuries that were not life-threatening. Police did not say whether the person who fired the gun stayed at the scene and no names were immediately released. (Read more gun show stories.)
