A 58-year-old employee was shot in the upper leg this morning when a firearm discharged at Dawsonville Gun and Pawn, on Ga. 53, near Ga. 400.
The woman was taken by ambulance to Northeast Georgia Medical Center in Gainesville, according to emergency personnel.
Dawson County Emergency Services Chief Lanier Swafford said she was listed in stable condition.
Dawson County Sheriff’s Capt. Ray Goodie said the shooting is being treated as an accident.
He said a second employee was holding the gun when it discharged.
“We’re finishing up our investigation here and will talk to the victim later to see what she has to say to us,” he said.
A sign on the front door Wednesday afternoon said the gun store and pawn shop would be closed the remainder of the day.
