HOT SPRINGS, AR -

(WMC-TV) - An Arkansas man accidentally shot himself and another person at a gun show Saturday.

Police stated 42-year-old Charles Pike picked up a pistol from a table and it went off hitting him in the hand, ricocheting off the floor, and then grazing another man at the gun show.

Organizers are baffled as to how it happened.

"For some reason, we (didn't) know this particular weapon had a round in it and had an accidental discharge," explained Gun Show Committee Chairman Larry Louden.

The two injured men went to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. No charges have been filed in this case. The Hot Springs police are still investigating.
