A man standing in his doorway who planned on shooting a rabbit that was in his yard accidentally shot his 4-months-pregnant girlfriend when she nudged him, Schertz police said today.
Captain Marc Bane said the man told officers that at 2 a.m., he spotted a rabbit in the yard of his house near Tulip Lane, a private road off Interstate 35 and FM 2252.
The man said he accidentally fired at his girlfriend when she nudged him.

She was hit in the side of the abdomen, Bane said.
He rushed his girlfriend to Northeast Methodist Hospital, and from there she was flown to University Hospital where she's in stable condition, Bane said.

It wasn't believed the shooting harmed their unborn child, he added.
“At this point we have no indication it was intentional,” Bane said, adding the investigation is ongoing.
No names were released.
