Cody Gunfighters

The Cody Gunfighters perform their nightly act in July 2014 in Cody. Three people suffered minor injuries during a show outside the Irma Hotel in 2017.

CODY (AP) — A street gunfighter show in Wyoming will use a real firearm for the first time since an actor mistakenly wounded spectators with live ammunition three years ago.

Actors stage the Wild Bunch gunfighter show for tourists visiting the town of Cody.

Organizer Kenny Martin tells the Cody Enterprise this year's shows will begin with a woman shooting a real shotgun loaded with blanks into the air.

Actors in the show have been using prop guns with blocked barrels since 2017.

In 2016, an actor mistakenly loaded live ammunition in a real gun. He wounded three spectators when he fired the gun during the act.

The accident shut down the show for the rest of that season.

This year's show takes place Mondays through Saturdays starting June 3.
