Man Accidentally Shoots Wife In Stomach While They Were On Couch Watching TV


A Richardson man accidentally shot his elderly wife Sunday night while the pair were watching TV, Richardson police said.

Police responded to a call about the shooting at about 9:20 p.m. Sunday at a local hospital where the couple had gone for medical treatment. The couple had been sitting on the couch in their home in the 2300 block of Shady Creek Drive when the man accidentally fired his Colt .380 Mustang, Richardson police spokesman Sgt. Kevin Perlich said.

A bullet struck the woman’s abdomen but did not seriously injure her. After the shooting, the couple drove to a local hospital, where police responded, Perlich said.

“She was very lucky. He was lucky,” he said. “It looks like it was strictly accidental.”
