Woman accidentally shoots self while dusting


Boardman police, fire and emergency personnel responded to a home on Carter Circle at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday for a woman who accidentally shot herself in the leg.

The 24-year-old woman told police she was dusting when she dropped her husband’s .45 caliber semi-automatic Glock she was attempting to move it. She attempted to catch the gun and grabbed it by the trigger, causing it to fire and hit her in the calf.

The woman was transferred to St. Elizabeth Health Center in downtown.

The gun and three other guns were taken by a family member for safekeeping.
