Several injured in accidental shooting at gun range

OCALA, Fla. -- Six people were injured in an accidental shooting at a Florida gun range Saturday, CBS Orlando affiliate WKMG-TV reports.

The Marion County Sheriff's Office told the station the shooting happened at 1:30 p.m. Saturday at the Forest Road 88 Shooting Range.

Deputies said an antique shotgun accidentally discharged into the concrete floor while a 21-year-old man was loading it.

The pellets ricocheted and hit six people, a family of five -- two men and three children ages 8, 10 and 14 -- and a 15-year-old child who is not related to the family.

They were taken to Ocala Regional Medical Center with minor injuries.

No one has been charged.
