COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) – Police in Colorado Springs say a woman sitting on a couch in her apartment was shot through a wall after her neighbor accidentally fired his gun while cleaning it.
The woman was taken to the hospital after Tuesday night’s shooting with what police described as a minor injury.
Police say 51-year-old Frank Dawkins accidentally fired his gun and the round went through a wall separating his apartment from his neighbor’s. Dawkins, who called police to report the shooting, was arrested on a count of illegal discharge of a firearm.
Dawkins was not being held in jail Wednesday and a phone number listed for him was not working.
