Local news reports
Lieutenant Bryan Ludwig of the St. Louis County Police told Patch the shooting was accidental.
"Two gentlemen in their 20s were playing with a loaded handgun, which they did not believe was loaded, and it went off," Ludwig said. "The victim was shot in the shoulder. He was transported to a local hospital for treatment." 

The case will be referred to the Prosecuting Attorney's Office for review, but Ludwig said the police did not arrest the other man for gun-related charges. 

They were what?  They were "playing with a loaded handgun?"  And no one was arrested?
What makes these twenty-something lawful gun owners any different from their criminal counterparts?  Nothing, that's what.
