A man accidentally shot and injured four of his friends while target shooting Saturday afternoon.

Jim Richardson of Salt Lake City was shooting clay pigeons southwest of Saratoga Springs on the north end of Lake Mountain when one of the shots he fired peppered his buddies with BBs. The friends were eating lunch together in the back of a pickup truck. The friends were struck in the head and neck."The man lost track of where the pigeon was and he accidently hit all four with one shot," said Utah County Sheriff's spokesman Lt. Ron Fernstedt.

The injured people were treated at American Fork Hospital and later released.
