Sandy Woman Accidentally Shot By Her Niece

A Sandy woman is recovering from a gunshot wound, at Murray's Intermountain Medical Center.

Police say her niece accidentally shot her in her home, after finding the handgun in a bedroom drawer while she was cleaning the room.

The incident occurred Monday evening, in a home near 101st South, 20th East.

Authorities say the 15 year old girl removed the gun, out of curiosity, and it accidentally discharged, while the 38 year old aunt was working on a computer in the room.

No charges are expected in the case.
