Woman Accidently Shoots Herself
This year's Buggy Festival went off without an incident until Saturday night when police responded to reports of a gunshot. At 8:17 p.m. Saturday officers found a 46-year-old woman had apparently shot herself by accident, though investigation of the incident is continuing.
Edna Ketchum, 46, of Carthage was airlifted to UNC Hospital in Chapel Hill for treatment of a self-inflicted wound to her abdomen, according to the police report.
"I think they did some exploratory surgery, but she is all right and has been released from the hospital," said Police Chief Chris McKenzie. "There was no indication anybody else was involved."
