A man was injured today in today after the gun he was firing malfunctioned at the Classic Pistol Indoor Range which is located in Upper Southampton.

The man who was described as “older”  was injured when the gun he was using “malfunctioned” according to an employee at the gun range which is located in the 1300 block of the Industrial Boulevard.

The shooting occurred in the early hours of the afternoon and by 3:30 p.m. police were no longer on the scene.

The injured man was rushed to Abington Memorial Hospital where employees will only confirm that he was taken, but give no information on his condition.

We are waiting for more comment from police and hospital officials who are hard to get in contact with due to it being a Sunday afternoon.

As of this afternoon the range remained open.

Classic Pistol Indoor Range states on its website that it is the only range in the area to “facilitate high power rifles and shotguns, as well as any pistol caliber.” The range also offers training classes and sells various fire arms.
