OKLAHOMA CITY - A little target practice was too hot for an Oklahoma woman to handle.
Police in Oklahoma City say Anna Herrera-Gomez was practicing with a nine-millimeter gun at an indoor range when a hot shell casing fell down the front of her shirt.
She jumped as the hot metal touched her skin and reached for her chest. And that's when she accidentally shot herself in the leg.
Police say Herrera-Gomez suffered a minor leg wound. A paramedic who happened to be target shooting at the range at the same time came to her aid.
