Howell Man Dies in Accidental Shooting at Brighton Gun Range
Livingston County Sheriff Bob Bezotte identified the victim as 19-year-old Charles Robert Kimball of Howell.
A 19-year-old Howell man died Saturday after a friend accidentally shot him at a gun range in Brighton Township, according to Livingston County Sheriff Bob Bezotte.
The victim, identified as Charles Robert Kimball, was not a member of the club, the Livingston Conservation and Sports Association. Kimball and the alleged shooter should not have been on club premises, Bezotte said.
The weapon was an AK-47, and the victim apparently stepped in front of the gun when it accidentally discharged, Bezotte said. The shooting occurred at approximately 12:45 p.m. Saturday.
Bezotte would not identify 19-year-old man who accidentally fired the gun.
No charges have been filed yet. The case is still under investigation, Bezotte said.
