Grossly Negligent and Unfit Alabama Gun Owner Shoots Himself and His Girlfriend by Accident - No Charges

A man and a woman are out of the hospital following an accidental shooting that injured them both, Decatur police said.

Police said officers dispatched to 112 George Drive S.W. about 11:15 a.m. today found Tammy Lynn Harris, 41, and her boyfriend, Jeff David Massey, 24, suffering from gunshot wounds.
Detective Joshua Fisher said Harris and Massey were lying in bed and Massey was about to clean the gun when it discharged, striking him in the left hand. The bullet then struck Harris in her right leg, Fisher said.
Both were taken to Decatur Morgan Hospital, treated for their injuries and later released, police said.

  1. "Police say 24-year-old Jeff David Massey and his girlfriend, 41-year-old Tammy Lynn Harris, were living in a homemade shed behind the residence where Massey was cleaning a pistol."

    While I've cleaned many a weapon sitting on my bunk, this article makes is sound like it was some sort of foreplay. Would this be an example of a premature discharge?
