DELTONA, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a Florida woman injured her hand when she shot her cellphone while trying to make a video of her uncle’s gun.
The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports that 22-year-old Regina Powell went to an Orange City hospital Sunday night with a small cut to her right thumb and index finger.
The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office reports that Powell told deputies she had been trying to make Snapchat videos of the .40-caliber handgun when she accidentally pulled the trigger. Powell was injured by glancing impact when the phone shattered in her hand.
Deputies responded to a Deltona home, where they found the phone with a bullet hole.
No criminal charges have been filed.
