FAIRBORN, Ohio (WDTN) – A woman has been taken to the hospital via Careflight after she is accidentally shot at a Fairborn gun range.

Deputies are investigating a woman who was shot at the Fox Shooting Loft around 5 p.m. at the Fox Shooting Loft, in the 8300 block of Dayton-Springfield Road.

She reportedly shot herself in the chest and deputies are working to learn if it was an accident. She was “doing well” when she left and was talking, said Doyle Wright, Chief Deputy, Clark County Sheriff’s Office. She’s listed in critical condition at Miami Valley Hospital.

The woman was patron and waited in line like every other customer, and bought a target — just like every other customer, Wright said, adding that investigators will have to review the video.

It appears the woman wasn’t familiar with a weapon, Wright said, noting that she did go to the gun range alone.

2 NEWS is working to learn more about the incident. We will update this story with more information as we get it.
