Man transported to hospital after accidental shooting

SIDNEY — Deputies of the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office are investigating an accidental shooting incident that occurred Monday morning and sent one man to the hospital.

Deputies responded to 10882 Schenk Road, Sidney, about 5:40 a.m. on a report of a 45-year-old male subject with a gunshot wound.

The victim, Jonathan E. Snider, reportedly was in his bathroom when Angela M. Bigelow, 36, walked in and observed him holding a 9mm semi automatic pistol. She believed that he intended to shoot himself, so she grabbed the pistol and a single round was discharged. The round struck Snider in his left shoulder, leaving a through-and-through wound.

He was initially transported to Wilson Memorial Hospital by Houston squad, and was later transferred to Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton by CareFlight helicopter.
