BEND, Ore. (AP) – A 22-year-old Oregon man is in the hospital after authorities say he was accidentally shot by a friend who was unloading a handgun.
The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office says Trevor Rogers was airlifted to St. Charles Medical Center in Bend Saturday night with injuries not considered life-threatening.
The office says 21-year-old Julian Messner accidentally shot his friend. The office says he mistakenly thought he had removed a round from the chamber of the semi-automatic handgun.
No criminal charges have been filed against Messner but the case is being sent to the Deschutes County District Attorney’s Office for review.
