On opening morning at 6:45 Saturday, a 40-year-old man in the town of Brussels suffered a self-inflicted wound to the left pinky on his hand.  The man placed his hand over the muzzle of the gun after pulling the hammer back on his firearm.  After being struck by the bullet, the man sought medical attention and was later released.

 

The other accident occurred on Sunday morning at about 7 am when a 45-year-old man was hunting from his residence when he shot a deer.  He attempted to unload his firearm and accidentally discharged it inside the house and struck a 10-year-old boy in the leg who was in another room.  The boy was transported to the hospital for treatment.
