Man Fatally Wounded at Florida Shooting Range
LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) - Authorities are awaiting the autopsy results for a man fatally wounded at a central Florida shooting range.
The Polk County Sheriff's Office says Larry Simpson of Clermont died of a single gunshot wound to the chest while shooting clays with a friend at the Tenoroc Mine Shooting Range in Lakeland.
According to detectives, Jaime Gonzalez of Orlando said he was at the shooting station and Simpson was operating the remote control for the clay machine. Gonzalez told detectives that he heard a shot directly behind him, and he turned around to find Simpson with a gunshot wound to his chest. Simpson's gun was lying beside him.
Deputies say Simpson died at the scene Sunday. Sheriff's office spokesman Scott Wilder says detectives did not know how Simpson was shot.
