MAN ACCIDENTALLY FIRES SHOT ON WAY TO GO HUNTING THAT HITS GIRLFRIEND

By LDR Staff

Kisses have been known to cause fireworks, but gunshots?

It was a kiss that a couple will remember for a long time, according to the Laclede County Sheriff's Department.

Deputies report a man had borrowed a .22-caliber rifle from a friend to go hunting and didn't know it was loaded.

As he prepared to leave his residence on Hackberry Road to go hunting about 3 p.m. Monday, he stopped to kiss his girlfriend and the rifle discharged.

The shot hit the woman in her left thigh.

Deputies said the woman was treated for a non-life-threatening wound at St. John's Hospital-Lebanon. Charges will not be filed.
