From staff reports
Marienville state police have concluded their investigation of an incident earlier this month in which a Clarington man suffered minor injuries after he accidentally shot himself.
The initial police report said the 39-year-old man shot himself with a handgun at 2 p.m. Dec. 8 in Tionesta Borough.
Police said Forest County District Attorney Barbara Litten decided not to prosecute the man, whose name hasn’t been released because he is considered a victim in this incident.
Lauer cited the fact the shooting was accidental and no one else was within range to be endangered as factors in Litten’s decision.
