(CBS 8) – A man accidently shot his girlfriend and her brother early Wednesday at a South Bay home. Both people were transported to a local hospital.
A 24-year-old man was showing off his new gun, when he pulled the trigger by accident just after 12:30 a.m. Wednesday on Wardlow Avenue in the Nestor area.
The bullet went through his girlfriend's leg and then hit her brother in the leg.
"What we can call this is two people were seated very close. A 40 caliber is a very high powered handgun and it does have the ability to go through flesh and go into other unintended objects," said Lt. David Rohowits with the San Diego Police Department. "In this case both objects were unintended. This is just a tragic accident."
Both victims were taken to the hospital and are expected to recover.
The gun owner is now facing misdemeanor charges.
