Man suffers leg wound in shooting at McGrath home

By Associated Press 8:02 AM June 19, 2014
MCGRATH, Alaska (AP) –

Alaska State Troopers say charges are pending against a McGrath man who was shot in the leg and a second man who was holding a handgun when it discharged.

Troopers on Monday took a 911 call of a shooting in the Kuskokwim River community of 320. The report said a 37-year-old man had been shot in the leg accidentally at a home.

A witness told investigators the man was drinking at the home of a relative and they began to argue. The first man refused to leave the home. The men struggled and a .22-caliber handgun fired, striking the visitor in the knee.

Troopers say they’re investigating the matter as a case of criminal trespass and weapons misconduct.
