HILLSVILLE — Hillsville police have closed their investigation into an accidental shooting at a worksite on March 15.
The investigation into the accident at the U.S. 58 bypass involving Theodore Clayton Fortune, 46, found that the gun was not in his hand, said Police Chief Steve Williams on Friday. And the incident was clearly an accident.
Police were still unsure why the gun went off or why Fortune had it on the job, because they had not talked to Fortune, who was still getting medical treatment.
