NEW: Woman shot by gun in oven

Web Posted: 03/26/2004 11:55 AM CST


San Antonio Express-News

A hot gun that discharged a round into a woman's hip early this morning wasn't stolen — it was literally being cooked.

Hidden inside an oven, the .357 revolver went off as Roxanne Perez began warming a meal in her South Side apartment.

The 29-year-old heard several shots, then felt a sharp pain in her left hip, a police report stated. She had no idea what hit her.

As it turned out, someone Perez knew stored the gun for safekeeping in the bottom drawer of Perez's oven about two weeks ago, then "completely forgot about it" — at least until the shots rang out.

The person heard the gunfire from another apartment, ran over to see what the commotion was about, and knew immediately what had happened: the gun left in the oven had discharged when Perez began cooking.

Police have ruled the shooting an accident, and said they do not expect to file any criminal charges. Perez, meanwhile, was reportedly in good condition at Wilford Hall Medical Center.

She told police she had no idea a revolver was being stored in her oven.

How many times does this have to happen? People should try using broil, instead. Bake just dries out the gun....

Not again!

I think ovens are now in the same list of grave threats along with pumas and bears!:eek:

Don't these ovens care about the children???? We need more oven control to keep things like this from happening.

I don't know about you, but I usually open the door and look inside to make sure it's clear before I turn it on.

1) Treat every oven as if it's loaded.
2) Never bake anything that you're not willing to eat.
3) Be sure of your intended recipe and ingredients.
4) Don't touch the dials until you've confrimed the first three rules, and are ready to bake.

That's entirely irrelevant to the story, you have to wonder why it's there...

Stolen items are sometimes referred to as "hot", it was an attempt at a pun.

A hot gun

Hot being a euphemism for stolen, the reporter was trying to be funny.

Ovens don't kill people, bad cooking kills people!

Apparently, Ms. Perez's acquaintance misunderstood when told to take it to the range.

I guess this is what is meant when someone talks about cooking off a round!

Eggsactly, Path.


It could have been worse, though. If that had been a Saturday Night Special, the whole thing could have exploded! We all know those things are made of POT metal.

I'm just glad she didn't PAN-ic when she realized what had happened.


I have to wonder if that affected their friendship. If somebody had pulled such a stupid stunt on my, I'd have been pretty fried about it.

You know Sarah Brady is gonna be all over this one. Finally, positive proof that "people don't kill people, guns kill people", and "the gun just went off". :rolleyes:

Apparently, when the gun owner told Ms. Perez that "he took the gun to the range", he forgot to mention it was an "Amana Range".

Does this rate as one of those "Mano Amana" situations that we are all advised to avoid when Cooking Concealed Weaons?

wingman, did you even read the story? Your thread title indicates that maybe you didn't. Perez did not cook her own gun. It was unbeknownst to her that the gun was placed in the bottom drawer of the oven. So, it wasn't her gun and since she didn't know it was in the oven, she didn't know it was going to get cooked when she turned on the oven. It is difficult to keep people from doing things about which they are unaware.

I think Atticus hammered this one nicely with the four rules of oven handling.

Yeah, right. Something doesn't add up here...

Several rounds cooked off, with the chamber lined up with the barrel going last.

I don't see anything fishy with the story.

If only the oven had a loaded firearm indicator...

I would be pretty STEAMED if someone decided to store a revolver in my oven without permission.

My mother's cooking is about like that. Too bad she wasn't heating up momma's meatloaf. Would've stopped the bullet.

And I thought it was impossible to have a "stove pipe" with a revolver.

Y'know I've set my oven to bake and to broil, but never to strafe.

And what was she using to cook the fish sticks? Smith & Wesson Oil?

Thank you, thank you, I'm here all week. Try the veal.

Y'know, guys, this is serious business. A woman got hurt, and it's likely that a friendship was ended. (I mean, if someone had done this to you, wouldln't you be pretty fried?) We ought to can these half baked attempts at comedy, and cook up some thoughtful responses to this situation.


I'm still wondering why on earth anyone would hide a gun in a OVEN! The article should have covered that, because I'm sure the police must have grilled him about it.


It all boils down to this, really: An oven is not the same thing as a range.
