(Orangeville) -- A woman wounded at a midstate gun show over the weekend says she doesn't blame the vendor who shot her accidentally while demonstrating a concealed carry wallet holster.

In fact, 25-year-old Krista Gearhart says her heart goes out to him for what she called a "horrible accident."

Police in Columbia County say Gearhart was shot in the right thigh on Saturday at the Eagle Arms Gun Show at the Bloomsburg Fairgrounds.

She was treated at Geisinger Medical Center and released.

Prosecutors will determine whether criminal charges will be filed. 

Gearhart says it's very ironic to be shot at a gun show.

But, she adds if there's another gun show in Bloomsburg next year, she and her husband will attend.
