An Arlington woman was hospitalized Friday afternoon after she accidentally shot herself in her leg while cleaning out her husband’s pants in their home in the 5200 block of Burdette Road, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.

The woman, said to be in her 60s, picked up her husband’s pants and shook them at about 1:15 p.m., Sgt. Felipe Alicia said.

“He carries a firearm in his pants pocket and it fell out and went off,” Alicia said. “ ... There are no signs of foul play or any signs of violence and we are classifying this as an accidental injury.”

Alicia said it was a small caliber gun and there were no other issues. City paramedics transported the woman to Memorial Hospital of Jacksonville.
