A 45-year-old man is expected to recover after he was accidentally shot in Lagoon campground.

The man and his 43-year-old brother were showing each other a small handgun inside a motor-home Friday night when, about 9 p.m., a round discharged and hit the older brother in his lower abdomen, said Farmington Police Lt. Parish Snyder.

Emergency responders arrived at the campground, located just south of the amusement park, and took the wounded man to Intermountain Medical Center. He is expected to survive the injury, Snyder said, adding that the shooting was an accident.
