A Jacksonville, Florida man told police it was his dog that shot his girlfriend in the leg while she was sleeping Tuesday night.
Brian Murphy told Jacksonville Police officers that he let his dog, Diesel, outside after the animal woke him up. When they returned to the bedroom, the room was completely dark. Murphy told police that Diesel walked in before him, and that he then saw a flash and heard a bang.
Murphy’s girlfriend, Summer Miracle, had been shot in the right leg while she slept. Murphy explained to police that Diesel jumped up on the nightstand, where his gun was sitting, and it went off, shooting Summer in the right leg.
Murphy’s girlfriend told police she was asleep when the shot was fired so she’s not sure what exactly happened. She was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
