Man Accidentally Shoots Hand While Cleaning His .22 Rifle

A man accidentally shot himself through the right hand Monday afternoon while cleaning a .22 caliber rifle after target shooting, sheriff's Deputy David Love said in a report.

Cameron Bolyard, 25, of 307 Horse Creek Road, said he was cleaning the rifle when it went off.

"He was on his back porch cleaning his .22 rifle. He said he was holding the rifle in an upright position with the butt resting on the floor and was holding the barrel end with his right hand palmed over the end," the report said.

Bolyard told deputies the rag he was using to clean the rifle "must have hit the trigger and it discharged a round through the center of his right hand," the report said.

Bolyard told deputies "he thought the rifle was empty but had failed to check it before cleaning," the report said.

The rounds used for target shooting and the one involved in the accident "were low-velocity varmint (ratshot) loads," the report said.

Bolyard was treated for the hand wound at the Laughlin Memorial Hospital emergency room, the report said.
