POSTED: 9:05 am EST February 20, 2006 UPDATED: 1:27 pm EST February 20, 2006 Two men handling a 9mm handgun in a darkened room were seriously injured Monday when the weapon went off in a Palm Bay home, police told Local 6 News partner Florida Today. The accidental shooting happened about 4 a.m. along the 2200 block of Washington Street. Police said Alphonso Jacobs, 23, had arrived at 19-year-old Stephen Terry's home for an unexpected visit, officials said. "They were handling a gun and fired a round. The round traveled through the hand of one person and hit the neck of the other one," said Capt. Alan Abner, a watch commander for the Palm Bay Police Department. Investigators said Jacob's fingers were severely injured. "His hand injury was significant because it was shot point blank. They were concerned about him losing some of his fingers," said Yvonne Martinez, spokeswoman for the Palm Bay Police Department. "They said they didn't see the handgun. When Jacobs came in, it was dark and they went to the back bedroom," Martinez said. Martinez said police were also looking into Jacobs' whereabouts just prior to the shooting. Both were taken to Holmes Regional Medical Center in Melbourne and were in stable condition, officials said. Watch Local 6 News for more on this story.
