ORLANDO, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - A 4-year-old girl is recovering after being grazed by a bullet late Friday night.
Orlando police are investigating the shooting at the Liberty Square apartment complex at around 10:30 p.m.
Officers tell Fox 35 a man was at home handling his 9mm pistol when it accidentally went off.
The bullet went through the wall and into the next unit, grazing the shoulder of the 4-year-old.
Neighbor Chris Hitchison said he was stunned.
“It's just shocking how stuff like that goes on,” he said.
Police say it was a minor wound, and the child went to the hospital to get checked out. They don't believe the man meant to fire the gun.
Neighbors are unnerved.
“It's not a good thing, for sure,” Hitchison said.
Police say the man legally owns the gun, but they are investigating whether there could be possible charges.
