Saturday's shooting occurred when a man approached the entrance of the Dixie Gun and Knife Show in Raleigh to have his personal firearm inspected.
The shotgun fired as he removed it from its case, according to a statement by the North Carolina Department of Agriculture, a host of the gun show.
Two patrons of the gun show were injured - a 50-year-old man and a 54-year-old woman - as was a 54-year-old retired Wake County Sheriff's deputy who was working at the show. None of the injuries were life-threatening, the statement said.
