NEW CARLISLE, Ohio (AP) - Authorities say a patient at an Ohio dentist’s office was shot in the hand when his gun went off while he was having dental work done.

The Springfield News-Sun (https://bit.ly/2bRDaFE ) reports the man was taken to a hospital for treatment of the injury, which wasn’t considered serious. No other injuries were reported.

Sgt. Chad Brown of the Clark County Sheriff’s Office says it’s not clear why the gun fired during a dental procedure Wednesday at a dentist’s office in New Carlisle, about 10 miles northeast of Dayton. Brown says the patient has a permit to carry a concealed weapon.

No other injuries were reported.
