   LANCASTER, Ohio (AP) -- Police say an instructor at a central Ohio gun safety class has accidentally shot a student.

    The Columbus Dispatch reports 73 year old Terry J. Dunlap Sr. was demonstrating a handgun at a training facility on Saturday when he fired a bullet that ricocheted off a desk and into the right arm of 26 year old Michael Piemonte.

      The student says the .38 caliber bullet hit him between his elbow and armpit. He says many of the students in the class were nurses who helped stabilize him before he was transported to a Columbus hospital.

      Piemonte tells the newspaper it appears Dunlap didn't know the gun was loaded. Dunlap hasn't responded to requests for comment.

   A police report lists the shooting as accidental.

   The St. Clair County States Attorney is considering charges after a six year old child got a hold of a gun and shot an 11 year old boy in Belleville Tuesday night.  

   Belleville police spokesman Mark Heffernan says it happened when three children were playing upstairs in a home during a family barbecue.  Police say the handgun didn't belong to the owners of the house but may have come from someone who was staying there.  

   Eleven year old Leonard Smith, Jr. was shot in the head and died on the way to the hospital.

   Police say Smith lived in East St. Louis and was visiting the family in Belleville.
