A Missouri woman who accidentally shot herself in the eye on New Year’s Day was adjusting the handgun in her bra holster when the gun fired off, according to police.
St. Joseph Public Safety Detectives are still awaiting the full autopsy report for Christina Bond, 55, but shared these details in the Kalamazoo Gazette on Wednesday.
"She was having trouble adjusting her bra holster, couldn't get it to fit the way she wanted it to. She was looking down at it and accidentally discharged the weapon," said St. Joseph Public Safety Director Mark Clapp.
Officers responded to Bond and found her with a gunshot wound in her eye on Jan. 1. They took her to the local hospital where she was then airlifted to a different hospital. She died the following day.
Life lesson of the day: don’t fidget with your gun if it’s loaded.
