BEND, OR (AP) -
A Bend woman accidentally shot her husband when her Derringer fell out of her pocket, hit the floor and fired.
KTVZ reports it happened Thursday at a McDonald's restaurant, and about 15 other customers who were inside at the time were startled by the gunfire.
Lt. Chris Carney says 47-year-old Richard Lee Cooper and 48-year-old Barbara Annette Masters were in the dining area when she leaned forward and the gun hit the floor. The impact caused the .22-caliber gun to fire, hitting Cooper in the abdomen. He was taken to St. Charles-Bend hospital in serious condition.
Masters was cited on assault and reckless endangering charges and released.
