Texas, US — A vendor handling a 12-gauge shotgun accidentally fired the gun and shot Dede King and two more employees on Saturday morning at the Wichita Falls Gun and Knife Show, KFDX-TV Reports.

“My whole life at this moment, has been taken away from me. My health will never be the same.” Dede King said.

King said she saw her co-worker laying on the ground bleeding from his injuries after she heard the gunshot.

“I couldn’t tell if he was dead or alive, but all of a sudden I couldn’t get to him. I couldn’t breathe, couldn’t move — and I realize I had been shot. I heard someone say she’s bleeding from the neck.” King said.
“Guns don’t accidentally discharge, people accidentally pull the trigger.  A gun’s never hurt anyone, never. People with a gun have. I guess if you had a loaded gun and threw it down, it might go off or something, that might be possible. It’s carelessness, and I can’t judge because this man is going to be judged. I would judge it was carelessness on his part to bring a loaded gun in here when it’s not allowed.” A spokesman for the annual event added.

King and her family are unhappy with the gun show’s organizers. They said in a statement that all the victims are fine, despite the fact that she has been fighting for her life and is unable to return to her full-time job at the Allred Prison Medical Department.
