The bullet struck one man in the hand, ricocheted and then struck the second man in the leg.

Both men were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries, according to police.

Police aren’t investigating the shooting as a criminal matter, so no charges are expected in the incident outside the Mountain America Expo Center.

Officers did remind gun owners to treat every firearm as if it’s loaded at all times to prevent similar accidental shootings.
