A 48-year-old Battle Creek, Michigan man and his 46-year-old wife were getting ready for bed. The man owns several guns and sleeps with a pistol under his pillow. As the couple went to go to their bedroom the wife picked up a 9mm semi-automatic handgun from an end table intending to carry it into the bedroom. She thought the safety on the handgun was on, but when she picked up the gun and grabbed the trigger the gun discharged shooting her husband in the knee.
They both told police that the shooting was an accident. Police are seeking a warrant for reckless discharge of a firearm.
