A 24-year-old woman is fighting for her life after she was shot in the head Monday afternoon at a shooting range in South Carolina.

It happened around 2 p.m. at the Skip J Range in Anderson. WYFF is reporting the Georgia woman was at the range with her family when she was accidentally shot. When emergency responders arrived at the scene, she was unresponsive.

Anderson County Coroner Greg Shore told WSPA the bullet entered her skull through her eye and is lodged in her brain. Shore said the woman had been to the shooting range with her family in the past.

Skip J Range owner Jerry James said it’s the first accident at the range, which has been open for 24 years. He said the range has “serious” safety protocols. Each shooter has their own shooting bay, and all guns have been accounted for in the wake of the accident.

The range shut down Monday after the incident but was back open Tuesday. Police are investigating.
