AMELIA, OH (FOX19) -

The owner of a gun shop was accidentally shot and killed during a concealed carry class in Amelia, the Clermont County Sheriff's Office confirms.  

Crews responded to the the Kay Jay Gun Shop on Lindale-Mt. Holly Rd. around 1 p.m. on Saturday for reports of a shooting. 

Clermont County Sheriff A.J. Rodenberg said James E. Baker, 64, was shot in the neck after a class participant discharged a handgun while practicing weapon malfunction drills, striking Baker who was sitting in an adjacent room. 

Investigators said efforts to resuscitate Baker were unsuccessful and he was pronounced dead at the scene. 

The investigation remains ongoing and the incident will be reviewed with the prosecutor's office.
