Welcome to Nashville, NRA members! For our third accidental shooting this week, let’s head south to Murfreesboro, where this happened:
Once on the scene, the victim told Detective Gorham at 1 in the morning that he heard a gunshot while in bed and felt something hit his ankle. Upon checking his ankle, he saw a bullet hole in his wall and his mirror was broken. He then called 9-1-1.
Police went to the next door neighbor’s address where a female was questioned about the shooting. That neighbor told the detective that the shot came from her condominium or apartment. The 33-year old woman told police she retrieved the gun to show her friends.
The report stated, “When she got to her bedroom she stated she picked the gun up and aimed it at the wall and pulled the trigger to see if it was unloaded, at which time it discharged.”
So, so, so responsible!
