SAN ANTONIO – A woman was shot in the hip Friday morning while cooking a meal after the heat of the oven discharged a .357 revolver that she didn't know was hidden inside.
Roxanne Perez, 29, was in good condition at Wilford Hall Medical Center.
An acquaintance stored the gun for safekeeping in the bottom drawer of Perez's oven about two weeks ago, then "completely forgot about it" according to a police report.
Perez, who said had no idea a gun was in the oven, said she heard several shots then felt a sharp pain in her left hip.
Police have ruled the shooting an accident, and said they do not expect to file criminal charges.
