An Indiana man was cleaning his handgun when he accidentally shot himself and another woman in their Elkhart home just before 6pm on Sunday.
Police said 37-year-old Phillip Vincze thought the bullets were cleared from the gun when he pulled the trigger.
Captain James Bradberry with the Elkhart Sheriff's Department said the bullet went through Vincze's hand before it pierced Jeanette Collins in both her legs.
The victims were taken to Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
