Crystal Lake police officers and fire personnel were called about 12:43 p.m. to the On Target firearms range at 560 Beechcraft Lane in Crystal Lake for a report of a gunshot wound, according to a release from police.
The woman apparently discharged a pistol accidentally while trying to remove a hot, expended shell casing that had landed inside her shirt, and “the fired bullet struck the patron’s own thigh,” the release said.
She was treated by paramedics on the scene before being taken to Centegra Hospital – McHenry for further evaluation and treatment.
No one else was injured, no criminal charges are pending and no further investigation will be conducted, the release said.
