MYAKKA CITY, Fla. -

Authorities in Manatee County say no charges will be filed against a woman who accidentally shot her fiancé in the leg at a gun range.

The couple was with a large group shooting at Manatee Gun and Archery Club in Myakka City on Saturday afternoon.

The sheriff's office report said a casing flew from the woman's gun and landed inside her blouse, causing her to flinch. She bent over to get the casing out of her blouse when the gun accidentally fired.

The bullet hit the man in his right thigh, passing through his leg.

He was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The Sarasota Herald Tribune reports the shooting was ruled an accident after deputies interviewed witnesses at the gun range. The couple was not identified.
