VAN BUREN COUNTY (WKZO) -- A woman visiting West Michigan from the west coast accidentally blew a hole through her foot this weekend at the Southern Michigan Gun Club in Almena Township.
Van Buren County Deputies and an ambulance responded to a 9-1-1 call that came in just after 10 Saturday morning.
The 46-year-old woman from the State of Washington was target practicing with a 9mm semi-automatic handgun when it jammed. She pulled the slide back and ejected the shell and thought it was empty.
Deputies say she pointed it down and pulled the trigger, intending to holster it, and instead shot her own right foot.
She was rushed to Bronson Emergency in Kalamazoo for treatment. Her name was not released.
