A Florida woman was rushed to a hospital earlier this week after being shot in the leg in her sleep. The culprit?
Allegedly, her four-legged friend.
According to WJAX-TV, 25-year-old Brian Murphy told police that he woke up in the middle of the night to take his dog, Diesel, for a walk. His girlfriend, Summer Miracle, remained in the couple’s bedroom.
After returning to the walk, Murphy claims the dog jumped on on the nightstand, where Murphy kept a loaded gun. Murphy described seeing a flash light up the completely dark room and hearing a loud bang.
Miracle sustained a gunshot wound to the leg and was rushed to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Miracle says she was asleep at the time of the incident and did not know how she got shot.
