Peg Broadcasting News Tuesday December 12, 2017

Crossville Police were called to a report of an accidental shooting on East First Street around 7:30 Sunday night. According to reports, 30-year-old Daniel Parsons was found lying just inside the front entrance of the residence, suffering from a gunshot wound to his right hand. Mr. Parsons said he was unloading a 12 guage pump shotgun for cleaning when a live round became stuck in the chamber. To clear it, Mr. Parsons attempted to manipulate the pump action while striking the butt of the shotgun against the floor. That is when a round discharged, almost severing Mr. Parsons? index finger and nearly hitting his girlfriend before going through a window. He was also missing significant flesh from the area between his index finger and thumb. Mr. Parsons was flown to UT Medical Center and at last report was in stable condition. It was indeed a close call for Parsons? girlfriend, Brittany Arnold. Police say the 9 pellet 00buck round apparently traveled through Arnold?s hair as it deposited bone and flesh fragments from Parsons. No charges had been filed at the time of the report an no one else was injured.
