Two injured in unintentional shooting at gun show in Idaho

Police are still investigating an unintentional shooting that happened Saturday at the Fort Boise Gun Show at Expo Idaho.
According to police, they received a call just before 3 p.m. that a gun was fired inside the exhibit hall. Apparently, a person attending the show picked up a gun that was on display and didn't realize there was a round left in the chamber. The gun discharged when the man pulled the trigger.
The bullet hit two other guns and sent shrapnel flying that hit two bystanders. One person was hit in the arm and treated at the scene. A 23-year-old man was hit in the eye and taken to the hospital for treatment for a serious eye injury.
