Gun-in-sock nut shoots 2 at school
TWO people were shot accidentally during a high school graduation ceremony after a gun hidden in a man’s SOCK went off.
The unnamed gun nut, 37, concealed the small weapon as he went into Hillier Stadium.
Police Chief Tyler Brewer, director of public safety in Augusta, said: “An individual sitting on the southern portion of the stadium had brought this gun in.
“It was in his sock. It was uncomfortable for him. He went to adjust his sock and the weapon went off – striking him in the foot.”
The bullet ricocheted 50 feet and hit the leg of a 28-year-old woman that was sitting underneath the media box.
Both people were taken to a local hospital, where they were treated for non-threatening injuries.
