Real bullets were fired during a re-enactment of an old west gunfight in Tombstone, Sunday afternoon.
According to a Sheriff’s report, two actors were participating in a gunfight skit when one fell to the ground after being hit by the live round.
Authorities inspected the weapons and found that one gun had held six live rounds prior to the start of the skit. Five had been discharged, with two hitting nearby businesses.
The actor who was shot underwent surgery to remove the bullet. As of Sunday night, he is doing well.
A Sheriff’s spokesperson says the incident is being classified as an aggravated assault. This is based on recklessness and serious injury involved. There have been no arrests at this time.
