A New Mexico gun shop worker was unloading a gun when it accidentally went off.

Silver City Police Chief Ed Reynolds says an employee at Copper County Sporting Arms was unloading a .45 calibre handgun when the weapon went off, shooting the man in the back.

Emergency responders closed off the street in front of the shop, so a medical helicopter could pick up the customer. It flew him to an El Paso, Texas, hospital for treatment.
