A man at an Andalusia gun shop was injured in an accidental shooting Wednesday.
Police were dispatched just after 10:45 a.m. to the intersection of East Three Notch and College Street after the man, who was not identified, was shot while cleaning a handgun.
“It was one of those accidental things,” said Lt. Paul Dean. “The gun went off while he was cleaning it, and (the bullet) took off a small portion of his left index finger.”
Dean said emergency personnel transported him to Andalusia Regional Hospital, where he was treated and released.
I love that little bit of down South wisdom, "It was one of those accidental things."  I'm sure the reporter edited it from the original, "It was one of THEM accidental things." But either way, the gun just went off.
Besides a small portion of his index finger, this guy should lose his God-given, Constitutionally-protected gun rights as well.
