One injured in gun range shooting accident

A man suffered minor injuries after accidentally shooting himself in the leg at the Cayman Islands Sport Shooting Association range near the airport Saturday afternoon.

In a statement, the club said this was its first accident of this kind since it started 35 years ago. “As with other sporting organizations, we are not immune to accidents but this proved to be an exception in our circumstance. We still retain one of the safest sporting records and regret any anxiety this may have caused the public,” the club said.

The members-only club, which also serves as a practice range for armed police, is the only shooting range on Grand Cayman.
