A lawsuit over an accidental shooting at a Wild West theme park in New Jersey that left an actor partially paralyzed has been settled. The settlement of nearly $2 million will end the litigation. The actor, Scott Harris, was shot in the head in 2006 during a staged gunfight at Wild West City in Byram, N.J.
Live ammunition was mistakenly used in the scene. A juvenile who fired the shot and another man who brought the bullets to the park have served probationary sentences. Arizona Territorial Rangers, a group of western re-enactors who performed at the theme park, will pay $950,000. Cheyenne Corporation, which owns the site where the park is located, will pay $1 million.
