Nebo, NC (FOX Carolina) – A man in McDowell County is facing charges deputies say after his son accidentally shot a friend.

According to deputies, the McDowell County Sheriff’s Office charged 48-year-old Merle Dwayne Foster with failure to store a firearm to protect a minor.

The sheriff’s office says in the early morning hours of March 27, Foster’s son had a friend spending the night.  According to deputies, Foster’s son was cleaning the handgun when it went off accidentally, firing a shot and hitting the friend in the lower left leg.

What can I add to that except, “Oops!”
