A Delmar Township man was the victim of an accidental shooting on Wednesday, Nov. 6.
Timothy Bowers, 41, of Wellsboro, was allegedly cleaning a firearm at his friend's residence on Stony Fork Road. As Bowers was attempting to clear the gun by pulling the slide back to eject the live round, the slide slipped from his hand, closing the action. Bowers' hand was reportedly on the trigger, which shot a single round into his left leg.
Bowers was flown to Robert Packer Hospital for his injury.
