    Man Says Gun Shop Owner Attacked Him

    PINELLAS PARK - A handgun was accidentally fired inside the Knights Shooting Sports shop and its owner is accused of attacking a customer on Friday night, according to Pinellas Park Police.

    Nicholas Slawkawski, 21, of Alachua County, drove with two friends to practice shooting at the Knights Shooting Sports, a shooting range in Clearwater.

    Slawkawski placed his Colt Defender, with the clip attached, on the counter when an employee fired the gun, striking a candy machine. No one was injured, police said.

    Slawkawski said the owner, Mark Martenfeld, pushed him from behind and threw a chair across the room. Slawkawski said he explained it wasn’t his fault and has filed charges against him.

    “He has a temper,” Slawkawski said. “He almost pushed over the counter for no reason. I will go to every hearing and make sure I see it to the end.”

    Efforts to reach Martenfeld were unsuccessful.

    Police are investigating the case as a battery charge against Martenfeld and are referring the case to the state attorney’s office, according to Pinellas Park Police Department Captain Sanfield Forseth.

    I'd be pissed if someone shot a gun in my business too...

    Hopefully it's his first offence and they won't fuck with the guy's business...

    It wasnt the customer that shot it, it was an employee, and if it was my shop I'd bitch slap them both, customer for handing over a loaded weapon and the employee for not making sure it was clear.

    1) All guns are loaded at all times.
    2) Keep your booger hook of the bang switch.
    3) IT'S A MAGAZINE NOT A CLIP.
    4) Both the employee and the customer should have been punished for this.

    Me too. It's actually a pretty nice range, and thats also where most of the cops from the smaller municipalities go.
