PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities say a man was accidentally shot at a gun show in Phoenix but is expected to recover.

Arizona Department of Public Safety spokesman Raul Garcia says the shooting happened around 11 a.m. Saturday at the Arizona State Fairgrounds.

According to Garcia, the man’s friend was looking at a semi-automatic handgun he had recently bought when it somehow discharged.

The bullet went through the man’s upper torso.

He suffered injuries that weren’t non-life-threatening but was taken to a hospital.

DPS is investigating.

Garcia says it is not known yet if any criminal charges will be filed.

The two men were attending the Crossroads of the West Gun Show.

Signs at the show as well as on the Crossroads website say loaded firearms are not permitted.
