Ten people were injured Tuesday night at a Kane County shooting club after being struck by buckshot fired from a gun that had been mistakenly loaded with a live round, authorities said.
The incident took place about 7 p.m. at the St. Charles Sportsmen's Club, near Elburn, when a 69-year-old club member from St. Charles fired his shotgun into the clubhouse floor, sending buckshot ricocheting and striking people who were nearby, Kane County sheriff's Lt. Pat Gengler said.
