Members of a Kamloops shooting range are in shock after a seasoned visitor from Vancouver accidentally shot himself in the torso this weekend during a competition Sunday.
A Facebook post from the Vancouver-based Canadian Tactical Cowboy Supplies identified him as Dr. Richard Cho, an experienced competition shooter and an International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC)-certified "Black Badge" instructor.
"Today the B.C. shooting community mourns the loss of a shining star," the business said on its Facebook page alongside a photograph of Cho. "(He) was a husband, healer, athlete, teacher, student and all-around great guy.
"… We are truly in Rich's debt. Our thoughts are with his wife and his family."
