Last updated on Wednesday, July 23, 2014

(GREENWOOD) - One person was injured after an accidental shooting over the weekend in Johnson County.

Sheriff Doug Cox says that deputies were called to a home in Greenwood just before 3 p.m. on Saturday. When they arrived, deputies found a 47-year-old woman being treated by medics.

The investigation revealed that the woman and her 23-year-old son were going through her recently deceased husband's gun collection. At some point, the son picked up a 9mm handgun, which then fired, striking his mother in the leg.

The mother was transported to Methodist Hospital where she was treated and released.

The gun in question was taken by authorities for the duration of the investigation.

The son has not been charged.
