An Indiana wedding descended into chaos that saw the groom and another man in jail, while a third man ended his night in hospital with a gunshot wound to his hand.

Groom Corey Parker was arrested on May 18 outside Cornerstone Hall in Salem, Indiana, shortly after celebrating his wedding.

However, the party saw police arrive at the reception after a guest called 911 to report how Parker had shot her boyfriend after a confrontation and struggle with another man, Jonathon Goff.

Parker told police how the drama began after his bride, Bethany Parker, left the wedding venue and returned to the Cobblestone Hotel with Goff’s wife, Nicole.

Parker explained how Goff argued with his own wife after he was accused of flirting with the wife of the shooting victim, Patrick McIntosh.

Just as Parker was about to leave, he and Goff started fighting in the parking lot.

Parker was in his car when Goff aggressively approached him. Parker claimed he thought Goff was trying to grab a gun from the car’s center console.

It was during the match that both men had their hands on the gun when it suddenly exploded, shooting McIntosh in the hand. He was not seriously injured.
