24-year-old Jeff Massey and his girlfriend, 41-year-ol Tammy Lynn Harris, were lying in bed together when Massey decided to clean his handgun. The couple were living in a homemade shed behind a residence in Decatur, Alabama.
Massey was dismantling the gun when he unintentionally discharged the weapon. The bullet struck Massey in the left hand and then struck Harris in the right leg. Both were transported to the hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries.
The police have ruled the shooting an accident and no charges have been filed.
