An employee suffered a minor injury when he accidentally discharged a firearm at the on-site gun range of the National Rifle Association headquarters near Fairfax.

Located at 11250 Waples Mill Road, the NRA headquarters includes the National Firearm Museum and the large gun range open to NRA members.

The employee was participating in firearms training at the gun range at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, according to Fairfax County police.

The man, 46, was holstering a pistol when the firearm discharged. He was taken to the hospital for a minor wound to the lower body.

Officers consulted with the Commonwealth Attorney’s office, but no charges are expected.

Even though it is an accident, the NRA employee is entitled to obtain legal compensation for his accident. In such situations, the victims almost always resort to a professional, like the personal injury lawyer florida, because they don't have the necessary experience to know what exactly to do.
