"Another one of those pesky unloaded guns going off while being cleaned By a Cop !
"He just finished cleaning it when it went off.How in hell can you run a cleaning rod through a gun barrel and not notice that it has a round in it ?" "
The sheriff's office says deputies responded to a report of an accidental shooting at the couple's home at about 12:15 a.m. Sunday.The woman, Robin Vaughn, was transported to Parkview Medical Center, where she was treated for a gunshot wound to her torso.
Authorities say a preliminary investigation showed Vaughn's husband, Pueblo police officer Stephen Vaughn, had just finished cleaning a pistol when it discharged.The two were in separate rooms at the time, and the round struck Robin Vaughn after traveling through a wall.
The case is being investigated by the sheriff's office and will be sent to the district attorney's office for review.
