Accidental shooting leaves man hospitalized

Reeds, NC (3-10-16) A man remained hospitalized Thursday after Davidson County deputies say he accidentally shot himself Sunday in Reeds.

Carrell Williams, 47, was listed in good condition Thursday afternoon at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, a hospital spokeswoman said. Williams was transported by AirCare on Sunday to WFBMC after the incident on Waitman Road.

The Davidson County Sheriff’s Office responded to 801 Waitman Road at 4:09 p.m. Waitman Road is near Old U.S. Highway 64 West and N.C. Highway 150 South.

DCSO Patrol Capt. Kevin Johnson said Williams apparently was taking his handgun out of his holster because he had been carrying it and accidentally shot himself. “He must have had his finger on the trigger when he was taking it out and the gun went off,” the captain said.

The bullet wound was on the left side of Williams' abdomen, Johnson said. The captain explained the man’s injuries were being considered nonlife-threatening.

Deputies were treating the incident as an accidental shooting, Johnson said.

Responding agencies were AirCare from Wake Forest Baptist Health, Davidson County EMS, A-RC-H Fire Department, Davidson County Rescue Squad and the sheriff's office.
