Police: Woman shot accidentally in Manor

Tuesday, Nov. 5, 2013, 1:36 p.m.
 

A 21-year-old Butler woman was shot in her leg just before midnight Monday at a Manor Township, Armstrong County residence.

State police say the incident happened in the 200 block of Prospect Street when a man with whom the woman was staying apparently was cleaning a handgun.

Police said the handgun fired accidentally and the bullet hit the woman in her right thigh. The man allegedly was pulling the magazine from the semi-automatic gun when it fired.

The woman was flown to UPMC Presbyterian hospital. It's unclear if she was still being treated there Tuesday afternoon.

State police are investigating the circumstances.
