Wexford County Man Charged After Accidental Shooting in Buckley

The convicted felon who police say accidentally injured his wife with a gun a month ago is now charged for having the weapon.

The incident happened at the couple’s home in Buckley back on March 1.

Troopers say Allen Wilkerson and his wife mishandled the handgun.

It fired — striking her in the thigh.

She was sent to the hospital.

But according to court records, Wilkerson was convicted of larceny before the incident and now considered a convicted felon.

And if he’s convicted in this case, he could face life in prison for having the gun.
