    Man Accidentally Shot On Weapons Safety Course
    Incident Happened At Summit Church Building

    ORLANDO, Fla. -- A man was shot in the foot during a concealed weapons safety course at a local church this weekend.

    Kristy-Lee Lawley, Summit Church communications director, said the incident happened Saturday in a conference room of the church building at 735 Herndon Ave.

    "The incident occurred when the instructor's weapon accidentally discharged and struck a participant in the foot," Lawley said.

    The man, identified as 50-year-old Robert Frauman Jr., was brought to Florida Hospital for treatment and was recovering well, Lawley said. No one else among the certified instructor or other participants were injured.

    "X-rays revealed no broken bones, but a clean pass of the bullet. The injury resulted in no stitches," Lawley said.

    Lawley said the course was not held by Summit."Summit Church allowed the use of their building for the training due to the fact that no other class or event was taking place at the scheduled time," she said. "A few of the course participants are attendees of Summit Church."

    The bullet also went through one of the church's conference room tables.

    NRA gun instructor shoots student by accident

    Instructor’s gun goes off, striking student in foot

    A gun instructor accidently shot a student in the foot Saturday during an NRA class to receive certification to carry a concealed weapon, Orlando police said.

    Robert Frauman Jr., 50, was taken to Florida hospital after instructor Michael Phillips' firearm discharged about 11:45 a.m., police said.

    Phillips, 32, could not be reached for comment. The accident happened at Summit Church, located in a former movie theater near he Fashion Square mall.

    The bullet went through a table before it hit Frauman, said Kristy-Lee Lawley, the church's communications director. She said Frauman, a member of the church, was "recovering well" and the bullet didn't break any bones.

    Frauman was one of three students in the class, which was not a church-sponsored event, Lawley said. She said the church offered an upstairs conference room for free after some church members requested to have the class there. Lawley said the church is empty on Saturdays and this was the first class of its kind there.

    "We won't be having anything like that in our church in the future," Lawley said.

    The church with 2,500 members is headed by Pastor Isaac Hunter, son of the Rev. Joel Hunter, senior pastor of the Longwood-based megachurch Northland, A Church Distributed. The churches are not affiliated.

    The NRA has a rule against bringing ammunition into a class, said Tom Wagner, a NRA instructor in Orlando who was not involved in Saturday's shooting. He said the association has "no problem yanking a certification if the rules are being broken."

    This was not the first time something's gone wrong during a gun demonstration in Orlando. In 2004, a special agent with the Drug Enforcement Administration shot himself in the thigh with a .40-caliber Glock pistol while talking to schoolchildren about gun safety.
