A 22-year-old Washington woman is suffering from a potentially life threatening gunshot wound after her boyfriend ‘accidentally’ shot her in the abdomen while he was preparing to clean his gun.
According to KOMO News, the victim’s grandmother called police just after 10:00 p.m. to say that her granddaughter had been shot by her boyfriend.
Officers and medics rushed to the residence and found the woman with a wound to her stomach.
The woman was rushed to Tacoma General Hospital and medics say her injuries are potentially life-threatening.
The genius boyfriend gunsplained to police that he accidentally shot his girlfriend as he was preparing to clean a semi-automatic pistol. The victim confirmed the story to officers before being transported to the hospital.
Officers say the boyfriend was extremely distraught and is cooperating with the investigation, according to KOMO News.
It’s not clear yet as to whether the unidentified 21-year-old boyfriend will face charges or not.
How does that go again: Never point a gun at anything or anyone unless it is your absolute intention to pull the trigger. Treat your gun as if it is always loaded.
Do not fire if there is anyone or anything next to or behind your target that you are not willing to hit.
This one is important: Do not shoot your girlfriend.
Be sure to give us some gun sense ‘like’ on Facebook.
