June 25, 1989|from Associated Press

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — A court found K mart partially responsible for injuries suffered by a customer who shot himself in the toe while examining a rifle he wanted to buy for his 6-year-old son.

Palm Beach Circuit Judge Edward Garrison ruled last week that K mart was negligent in the June, 1987, accident because a clerk handed Richard Rubin the gun without checking to see if it was loaded. The judge awarded Rubin $10,419.
