John Salvati: Georgia man accidentally shot dead at Quickshot Savannah gun range over Memorial Day weekend. No charges to follow.
A Georgia man has died after being ‘accidentally’ shot dead at an indoor gun range at Savannah over Memorial Day weekend.
John V. Salvati, 59, was inadvertently struck by a member of his party Monday at Quickshot Savannah and rushed to Memorial Medical Center, according to Savannah Police Department.
He later died from his injuries, authorities said.
Photos on the married father’s Facebook page showed him visiting the beach and celebrating birthdays with friends and family.
Relatives mourned Salvati’s death Tuesday by paying tribute on social media.
‘To say I am devastated and as is the rest of my family is not even close,’ Salvati’s nephew, Frankie DeFeo, wrote on Facebook.
Police said they’re investigating the shooting, but charges will likely not be filed, AJC reported.
Unclear is what safety standards were in place at the indoor gun shooting range and whether participants adequately followed all guidelines?
