TULSA, Okla. (AP) – A man guarding a small-town Oklahoma gun range and survivalist shop that declared itself a "Muslim-free" business dropped his weapon and accidentally shot himself.

Authorities say an unidentified man dropped his gun Tuesday and a bullet struck his arm. He was among armed residents in front of the Save Yourself Survival and Tactical Gear store in Oktaha, about 60 miles southeast of Tulsa.

The store says it reserves "the right to refuse service to anyone." A message left at the business wasn’t immediately returned Wednesday. An operator of the store’s Facebook page promised to release a statement.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations says several businesses have declared themselves "Muslim-free" and that it has asked the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate some for possible civil rights violations.
