Two men designated as safety officers at the Cheshire County Shooting Sports Education Foundation suffered gunshot wounds when one of them mistook a loaded gun for a training gun during a presentation on Sunday, according to police.
The only activity listed for that day on the club’s calendar was the “Republican Shoot,” also known as the Al Kulas Shoot — a Republican committee fundraiser named in honor of deceased local radio host Al Kulas.
Marilyn Huston, chairman of the Cheshire County Republican Committee, did not respond to a request for comment. Peter Crowell, the club’s general manager, declined to comment on the incident when contacted Monday. He said any media reporting should wait until the police investigation is complete.
