Teen hurt by shotgun blast through floor

AVON, Ind. (AP) — Police say a 19-year-old man was handling a shotgun in a suburban Indianapolis home when it went off, firing a round through the floor and injuring a young woman who was in a basement bathroom.

The Hendricks County Sheriff's Department says the 18-year-old woman was taken to an Indianapolis hospital in stable condition with non-life threatening wounds to her thighs after the Thursday night shooting in Avon.

Sheriff's Lt. Jim Yetter tells WTHR-TV the man was handling the shotgun in a bedroom and the shooting appears to be accidental.

The man who fired the shot is the homeowner's son, while the wounded woman was visiting the home in a subdivision in the western suburb of Indianapolis.
