Woman shot at Pa. gun show doesn't blame vendor


ORANGEVILLE, Pa. (AP) (AP)ong> - A woman wounded at a central Pennsylvania gun show over the weekend says she doesn't blame the vendor who shot her accidentally while demonstrating a concealed carry wallet holster.

In fact, 25-year-old Krista Gearhart told the (Bloomsburg) Press Enterprise on Sunday that "my heart goes out to him" for what she called the "horrible accident."

Police in Colombia County said Gearhart was shot in the right thigh on Saturday at the Eagle Arms Gun Show at the Bloomsburg Fairgrounds. She was treated at Geisinger Medical Center and released. Prosecutors will determine whether criminal charges will be filed.

Gearhart said "it's very ironic" to be shot at a gun show. But she said if there's another gun show in Bloomsburg next year, she and her husband will be there.
