DENVER -- One man was shot while attending one of Denver's most popular gun shows on Saturday, CBS Denver reports.

Witnesses told the station the man was unintentionally shot by another attendee at the Tanner Gun Show.

"There was a bang, and then a gentleman screamed," said one witness, who wished not to be identified. "I saw a man bleeding from the lower right leg."

The witness rushed to the scene where the shot was fired.

"Someone negligently discharged a firearm, and it struck another person in the leg," they said. "There had been somebody that already applied a belt, as a makeshift tourniquet. It was ineffective. I applied a tourniquet that someone handed me."
