Two Wounded In Accidental Shooting

Calaveras County Sheriffs say two people were wounded yesterday morning in an accidental shooting in Railroad Flat.

When deputies arrived at the house on Ridge Road, they found 23 year-old Crystall Murray had been shot in the thigh with a .45 caliber handgun by family friend 32 year-old Michael Alander.

Alander was wounded in the hand when the gun went off.

Investigators say the man had been looking at the pistol when it discharged.

Murray is being treated at Mark Twain St. Joseph’s hospital in San Andreas.
