23-year-old John Acevedo, of Orlando, Florida had just returned from the gym when he decided to clean his 9 mm Glock handgun. Acevedo was standing in the kitchen of his apartment, attempting to remove the slide from the handgun when he unintentionally discharged the weapon.
The bullet struck his wife, 25-year-old Jean Zambrana, in the right arm and continued into her abdomen. She is expected to recover.
Police have not yet determined if Acevedo will face charges but the Department of Children and Families was notified about the incident because the couple's 1-year-old daughter was in the home at the time of the incident.
