A woman was taken to the hospital after she accidentally shot herself over the weekend.
The Minnehaha County Sheriff's Office says it happened at the Garretson Sportsmens Club on 255th Street Sunday afternoon. They say at around 4:30, a 32-year-old woman was practicing a maneuver she had learned at a self defense class. The sheriff's office says using a 9 millimeter handgun, she was shooting while laying her back when her leg came up and she accidentally shot her ankle.
Minnehaha Co. Sheriff's Office Capt. Paul Niedringhaus said, "There was two witnesses that did observe this that were with her that did confirm that's what she was doing and thats what did happen and again doesnt appear anything other than an accidential shooting."
The woman was taken to Avera McKennan Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
