CRYSTAL TOWNSHIP, Mich. – Montcalm County Sheriff’s Deputies are investigating after a man was shot in the leg with a .45 caliber handgun.

Deputies say the eighteen year old Carson City man, along with a twenty-three year old Carson City man, were disassembling their weapons in a Crystal Township home Saturday evening. That’s when the twenty-three year old thought he unloaded his handgun and while attempting to disassemble the weapon it discharged shooting the victim in the leg.

Sheriff’s deputies continue to investigate this case and the prosecutor’s office will review to determine if any charges will be issued.
