Customer injured when gun unintentionally discharges in pawn shop.

62-year-old Raymond Hesterlee of Thornfield, Missouri was in West Plains Pawn and Fine Jewelry store when an employee of the store dropped a gun. The gun discharged and the bullet struck Raymond, hitting him in the left hip and groin area. Raymond was flown by air ambulance to the hospital in Springfield.
News reports failed to mention what the employee was doing with a loaded gun or why the gun wasn't equipped with safety features that would have prevented it from discharging simply by being dropped.
Ohh shoot.
