Woman Accidentally Shoots Boyfriend

A man is recovering Thursday morning after his girlfriend accidentally shot him in the stomach.

The accident happened at the Westminster Apartments near 51st and Memorial just before 1 a.m.

Police told KTUL that the woman's boyfriend was showing her how to use the gun and load it. She went out on the balcony, while he watched her down below on the sidewalk.

It was then that she said the gun malfunctioned and went off, hitting him in the stomach. The woman said she thought the safety was on. Two kids were also in the house at the time, but they were sleeping and did not get hurt.

Police took her into questioning to make sure it was not a domestic dispute. If it is, she will face various charges.
