Accidental tactical simulation shooting ends in $5.5M settlement

The Threat Assessment Tactical Solutions building in Stroudsburg, Pa., as seen in 2019.

Cody Saylor aimed his gun across the garage at the man who entered. It was supposed to be a simulation. Saylor played the aggressor, and Darin McMahon, his target.

Saylor peered through the window of a car between them, and then shot — bang. It was louder than it should have been, louder than the simulation gunfire they’d exchanged all weekend long. McMahon fell immediately.

“What was that?” someone yelled.

By the time police arrived, McMahon was no longer breathing. He lay unresponsive on the ground of the garage with a gunshot wound to the neck, the bullet from Saylor’s Glock lodged in his spinal cord. 

Wednesday marks the two-year anniversary of the accidental shooting in Threat Assessment and Tactical Solutions, a Stroudsburg shooting range. Saylor faces criminal charges now, and TATS has closed.
