Police responded to a report of an industrial accident at the site of a home framing in the 4200 block of Sweet Leaf Lane in Edgewater just before 11:30 a.m. They found a 34-year-old Laurel man suffering from injuries related to a nail gun shot, according to authorities.

The man was taken to a hospital with possible life-threatening injuries. Investigators later determined that the victim was hurt after a dispute with a co-worker, who shot him with the nail gun.
