WATERTOWN, S.D. (AP) - Police in northeastern South Dakota say a man accidentally shot himself during a gun show.

The Watertown Public Opinion (https://bit.ly/1C5vcR3 ) reports that the Arlington resident mistakenly thought his 9 mm Ruger pistol was unloaded, but when he fired the gun, a bullet struck the ring finger on his left hand.

Watertown Police Department Sgt. Troy VanDusen says the man was taken from the Curt Carter Memorial Gun Show to a local hospital.

The man’s condition is unknown, but the injury is not believed to be life-threatening.
