A San Antonio, Texas man in his thirties thought there was an intruder in the house, so he got his gun. Unfortunately, he unintentionally discharged the weapon, shooting both himself and his girlfriend in the leg. The couple was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
According to one of his neighbors, the shooting was "not a complete shock." The neighbor described the man as "not well" and "paranoid" and described a recent incident where the man was in his backyard with his gun search for an intruder but there was no one there.
The police said that while they think the shooting was accidental, there was no evidence of an intruder.
