ST. PETERSBURG — A national guardsman accidentally shot a colleague Thursday night while examining a loaded revolver in a room at the La Quinta Hotel.
Jeffrey A. Spurr, 26, of Bronson, was checking out the grip on Michael Wdowiak's .357 revolver when the gun went off, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office.
Three other people were in the room, but Wdowiak, 21, of Weirsdale, was the only person injured, deputies said. Paramedics were called to the La Quinta at 4999 34th St. N at 10:22 p.m.
Wdowiak was taken to a local hospital where he underwent surgery Thursday night.
No charges have been filed. Both men serve in the Florida National Guard company based in Ocala. They were in town to help with the Republican National Convention.

On a separate note, and come on now be honest, who among us hasn't accidentally shot a colleague while examining a loaded revolver in a room at the La Quinta Hotel? Huh? Be honest, I'm pretty sure we all have at one time or another.
I read it on Fox News.

God! I f I had dollar for everytime I shot..............................................
National Guardsmen carry revolvers?? Since when?
If he was, the guy would be dead.
That they didn't accidentally shoot each other is a miracle.
They don't give them bullets.
