According to the Knoxville News Sentinel, the incident occurred at the f First United Methodist Church in Tellico Plains, when an 80-year-old man pulled his gun out during a discussion about guns being allowed in church.

A husband and wife pair was accidentally shot in a Tennessee church after discussing church shootings with members of their place of worship.

Police said a man in his 80s pulled out a.380 caliber Ruger handgun and boasted, "I carry my handgun everywhere".

Once the gun came back around to its owner, police say the man put the magazine back in and recharged the chamber, but accidentally squeezed the trigger.

The man allegedly removed the magazine, cleared the chamber and showed the gun off to the men. After several people looked at the gun, he reloaded it and put it back in the holster and put it away.

Another person walked up and asked to see the weapon.

The couple was transported to University of Tennessee Medical Center by helicopter for non-life threatening injuries, according to Parks.

The gun was lying on its side on a table, and the bullet sliced the man's palm and entered the left side of his wife's abdomen and exited the right.

A statement on the Tellico Plains Police Department Facebook page said local schools were briefly placed in lockdown after the shooting while officers investigated the scene. But it was not an active shooter situation. No other people were harmed in this accident.
