Shell casing lodges in woman’s neck
A shell casing that struck a woman in the neck Monday during target practice sent a woman to a Wichita hospital.
According to Undersheriff Larry Starkey, the 23-year-old woman and others were doing target practice on Quail Creek Rd. between 120th and 130th Rds. when a shell casing ejected and struck her in the front of her neck.
Starkey said deputies determined the incident was accidental.
Marion County emergency medical service was not called to the scene but transferred her from St. Luke Hospital to a Wichita hospital for treatment.
