AMELIA, OH (FOX19) -

911 tapes released Monday reveal how the owner of a gun shop was accidentally shot and killed during a concealed carry class in Amelia Saturday.

James E. Baker, 64, was shot in the neck after a class participant discharged a handgun while practicing weapon malfunction drills, according to Clermont County Sheriff A.J. Rodenberg said

The 911 caller told dispatchers that a live round was found in one of the guns being used in drills at the Kay Jay Gun Shop on Lindale-Mt. Holly Road.

The caller said students were using plastic bullets in the malfunction misfire drill.  

“We just double-checked the bullets and there was a live round in one of the guns and it went through the wall and shot the owner in the neck,” said the 911 caller.

Baker was sitting in an adjacent room when the live round went through the wall, the caller stated.

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.
