Police: Man Practicing Military-Type Drills Shot Wife

Man Had Rifle In Bathroom

Colorado Springs police said a man practicing military-type drills in his bathroom with a rifle accidently fired a round inside his home and hit his wife.

Police said the bullet traveled through two walls, a mirror, and two closet doors where it broke apart.

A fragment hit the man’s wife, who was in a room on the opposite side of the home, according to the police report.

The woman was treated for a minor injury at Penrose Hospital.

Officers said the accidental discharge was caused by negligence, so officers arrested Alph Jones on a charge of reckless endangerment.
