DALLAS — An 81-year-old man accidentally dropped a handgun during Rosh Hashanah services at a temple, and the weapon shot his daughter in the foot and injured two other people.

Marvin Marks accidentally dropped the gun when he stood up at the synagogue Wednesday evening, police said. The bullet struck his 42-year-old daughter, who was hospitalized with non-threatening injuries. Two other people suffered minor scrapes from the bullet.

Police said Marks was licensed to carry the gun.

Calls to police seeking further details weren't immediately returned Thursday.
