LEBANON A man accidently shot himself in the hand and another man in the forearm while negotiating a gun-for-tires trade near Lebanon Friday, deputies said.
Around 11:30 a.m., 23-year-old Brandon Butler and 31-year old Anthony Catullo were talking about trading tires for a .45 caliber semi-automatic pistol on a logging road near McDowell Creek Park.
While discussing the trade, Butler tried to show Catullo how to disassemble the gun when it went off.
The bullet grazed Butler s hand and hit Catullo in the forearm, shattering a bone, deputies said.
Authorities said alcohol was a contributing factor in the accident.
The two men were driven to the hospital, and no charges were filed.
