LA VISTA, Neb. (AP) - An Omaha man has been charged in an accidental shooting earlier this month at an indoor gun range.
One count of third-degree assault was entered against 37-year-old Bryan Deming in Sarpy County Court on Wednesday.
The Sarpy County Sheriff's Office has said Deming was dismantling his Glock .40-caliber pistol at The Bullet Hole when the gun inadvertently fired, striking 37-year-old Greg Boll in the shoulder. Boll suffered a critical injury in the January 10th shooting and spent days in the hospital.
Deming's arraignment is scheduled for February 20th.
If convicted, he faces up to a year in jail.

His Glock did NOT inadvertently fire!, Brian put his finger on the trigger & pulled it, as a Glock has to be decocked to fieldstrip, But Brian did not follow the proper steps listed below.
It really is as simple as that.
1. Always Keep the Gun pointed in a Safe Direction
2. Remove the Magazine
3. Rack the slide & lock back
4. Look and make sure chamber is clear, if you can't see in use your finger.
Now you may proceed to field strip the pistol
