RALEIGH, N.C. – A North Carolina woman is recovering after she was accidentally shot in the head at a gun show.

According to WRAL, three people were inside a pickup truck outside the Dixie Gun and Knife Show after 30-year-old William Glosson bought two guns from the show.

Officials say Glosson handed Losonya Judd, who was sitting in the backseat of the truck, an unloaded gun and a loaded gun.

As she was looking at the guns, police say she accidentally fired one and the bullet hit 29-year-old Alyssa Glosson in the back of the head.

“He handed it to the lady in the backseat. He says, ‘Look at this,’ and somehow or another when she grabbed it, the gun went off, discharged,” said Wake County Sheriff Donnie Harrison. “It looked like it might have hit the seat rest, so that could have stopped some of the impact.”

Glosson was treated at a nearby hospital and released.

This is the second accidental shooting at the gun show in the last three years.
