BLOOMSBURG, Pa. (AP) — Police say a vendor accidentally shot a woman in the leg while demonstrating a gun and holster at a gun show in central Pennsylvania.

Bloomsburg police say the Columbia County district attorney's office will determine whether the vendor, 44-year-old Geoffrey Hawk, of Warminster, will face any criminal charges in Saturday's incident at the Bloomsburg Fairgrounds.

Hawk didn't immediately return calls to his cellphone and business on Sunday.

Police say Hawk told them he thought the gun was unloaded when he demonstrated a concealed-carry wallet holster to the woman. Police say the woman was treated and released for a wound to her thigh at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville.

Eagle Arms Gun Show organizer Joel Koehler says Hawk was asked to close his In Case of Emergency Enterprises booth as the gun show continued Sunday.
