Clear the Streets in Cody; Gunfighters to Return this Summer

In spite of a shooting accident that injured three people last summer the Cody Gunfighters will be back next summer performing downtown six nights a week.

The Cody Gunfighters perform for large crowds of tourists downtown every summer, but last July, one of the actors was accused of firing live rounds injuring three people and damaging a business.

The actor, Steve Winsor plead not guilty to misdemeanor charges in connection with the accident.

Cody Police Chief Chuck Baker told the Cody City Council he thinks the gunfighters show will be safe because they’ve agreed to his safety conditions for the summer shows.
