Oven Gets Hot, Woman Gets Shot

SAN ANTONIO (Reuters) - A Texas woman heating fish sticks was shot in the leg by a gun that had been stashed in her oven, police said.



Roxanne Perez, 29, was taken to a local hospital where she was in good condition, police said Friday.


They said a friend of hers had hidden the .357 caliber handgun in the stove two weeks earlier without telling her after she told him no guns were allowed in her house.


When Perez heated up the fish sticks she also heated up the gun, which caused several rounds to be fired. One hit her in the leg.


No charges have been filed because the shooting was accidental, police said.

This is the same thing that happened to the Madison, Wisconsin Chief of Police a few years ago. I guess he was hiding his Glock from his grandchildren in the oven, and cooked off a round. We heard that even a few newspapers in England carried the story.

That's going make a souffle fall, for sure!
