- (WPBF Screen Shot)
A bowler has shot himself at the Jupiter Lanes Bowling Alley located on Maplewood Drive on Tuesday night.
It is believed that the shooting incident was a complete accident, with Jupiter police officer, Adam Brown, reporting that it appears the man's own gun accidentally discharged.
Eye witnesses have told of their shock at the loud gunshot that suddenly went off as the busy bowling alley was filled with bowlers out for the night.
A number of witnesses have said that the firearm was in the bowler's pocket when it suddenly went off, terrifying other players around him.
The man suffered a gunshot wound, and emergency services were called and attended the scene. The man was taken to the nearby St Mary's Medical Center for treatment, although his injuries were said to be non life-threatening, according to Brown.
Police have investigated the circumstances surrounding the incident, and have said that the man will not face any charges.
Police did not say whether or not the man who shot himself had a license to carry the gun, but given the fact that he is not being charged, it is presumed that he did have one.
