Gatling gun discharges, kills man at weapons expo near Altoona

HOLLIDAYSBURG, Pa. –A military-style machine gun discharged at a weapons exhibition at a gun club Wednesday night, killing a man, state police said.
Police on Thursday were still trying to piece together how the Gatling gun, which was mounted on the back of a Hummer, discharged. Authorities did not release the name of the victim, a 36-year-old man from Hollidaysburg who was shot once in the head.
"We don’t know if the gun went off in error, or his actions caused it, or what happened," Trooper Matthew McCalpin said.
More than 100 people were at the Hollidaysburg Sportsmens Club in Frankstown Township, about 90 miles east of Pittsburgh, when the shooting occurred.
The Gatling gun was part of a weapons exhibition offered by East Coast Gun Sales. The company was hosting a pistol shoot and dinner for those attending a three-day conference at the Blair County Convention Center.
Club secretary William Johnson Jr. said Thursday he had been told the victim was operating the gun at the time it discharged, and that the shooting appeared to be accidental. Johnson said he was not at the club, which had been rented out by East Coast Gun Sales for the dinner.
The weapon, a 7.62 mm "minigun," is similar to ones used by the military on a wide variety of aircraft. Police said they called in a military weapons expert to help with the investigation.
"We’re going to have to check everything," McCalpin said.
Paul Cunningham, the manager of East Coast Gun Sales’ store in Duncansville, could not be reached Thursday. An employee at the store referred questions to state police.
The conference, sponsored by a maker of software for prisons, was canceled Thursday.
