    BAD: Fargo woman sleeping with gun accidently shoots neighbor’s headboard

    From the Fargo Forum:

    FARGO – A woman sleeping with a shotgun in bed rolled over on it, discharging the gun and sending a pellet through the wall and into the headboard of her neighbor’s bed, police say.

    The woman’s neighbor wasn’t home at the time, and reported the incident to police Monday morning after finding the hole, Fargo Sgt. Jeff Skuza said. No one was injured by the incident.

    Skuza declined to say why the woman was sleeping with the gun. It is not uncommon for individuals to have guns in the bedroom, but not often in bed with them, he said.

    “It’s not something we recommend,” Skuza said.

    The discharge in the 3300 block of 16th Avenue South appears to be accidental, but the woman could face charges for the incident ranging from negligent discharge, discharge of a gun in city limits and reckless endangerment, Skuza said.

    Police have responded to reports of bullets or projectiles going into neighboring apartments accidentally in the past, most often in cases of individuals handling guns, cleaning them or in suicides or suicide attempts, Skuza said.

    “It’s the first time I can remember one sleeping with a gun,” Skuza said.
    Looks like she could use one of these.

    She almost got nominated for a Darwin Award! I'll bet that woke her up real fast.

    She still belongs in the Darwin classification.

    Better to be woken by it than pushed into deeper sleep.

    I would think there would be more penetration,unless it was birdshot and most of the blast and pellets were absorbed by a headboard and wall.Anyway I never sleep with a gun in my bed and for her to fire a shotgun either she didn't have the safety engaged or it was defective

    I think I would prefer calling the police after I was responsible for an accidental discharge. Much better than the police showing up after a neighbor calling about damage to their house.
