A Jackson County man was injured Sunday when his gun went off striking his foot.
The Jackson County Sheriff's Office says 23-year-old Jeffrey W. Fleetwood, of Vallonia, was preparing to take his .308 hunting rifle outside. He rested the rifle's muzzle on his foot to free his hands and it started to fall over. When Fleetwood tried to catch the rifle, he fired it injuring his foot.
Fleetwood was taken by a friend to Schneck Medical Center in Seymour for treatment.
The sheriff's office continues to investigate.
