Bismarck police looking into accidental gunshot at Event Center show

{{featured_button_text}}

Bismarck police are investigating an unreported, accidental discharge of a shotgun Saturday at a gun show.

The gunshot occurred about 10 a.m. Saturday at the Dakota Territory Gun Collectors Association gun show at the Bismarck Event Center, according to police, who responded after 4 p.m. Saturday upon an inquiry from the Tribune.

Lt. Cody Trom said police are working to identify the vendor involved and any witnesses.

There were no injuries or damages, according to Trom.

The exact circumstances of the accidental discharge weren't immediately known, he said.

"It certainly was accidental," Trom said.

More information will be available Monday as to if any charges might come forth from the investigation, he said.

It is a misdemeanor to discharge a firearm within the city.

"You have to also establish intent, though," Trom said.

The Bismarck Event Center did not immediately return a phone message from the Tribune.
