As reported, a 37-year-old Cleveland, Ohio woman was shot in the pelvis inside her home Monday night when a Highland Hills officer’s gun was unintentionally discharged.  The injured woman, Richetta Ballou of East 73rd Street, was flown by helicopter to Huron Hospital, where she underwent surgery. Charles Golsten, 24, was reportedly attempting to adjust an off-duty holster holding a .22 caliber gun when it was fired.

Remember: There is no such thing as an “accidental” shooting.
