In-laws unintentionally shoot each other in two separate incidents

One family in Chaska, Minnesota is having a rough week. First, a man who was negligently handling a handgun unintentionally shot his father-in-law in the foot.

A few days later, the man who was shot in the foot was also mishandling a handgun when he unintentionally shot himself in the hand. The bullet passed through his hand and struck his wife in the stomach. The family was playing Monopoly at the time.

The son-in-law, who had previously shot his father-in-law in the foot, drove his in-laws to the local hospital. They were transferred to a larger medical center for treatment.

Police say alcohol does not appear to have been involved in either incident.
