Pendleton police Lt. Charles Byram reported officers responded to a home on the 600 block of Southeast Eighth Street on a report of an accidental, self-inflicted gunshot wound that resulted in a minor injury.

The investigation revealed the homeowner armed herself with her .357 revolver after hearing what she believed to be a prowler in her backyard. She checked outside, found no one on her property and returned to the house. There, she tried to un-cock the hammer to render the gun safe but fired off a shot.

The round grazed a finger on her left hand, according to Byram, and medics treated the wound at the scene.

Byram also reported Pendleton police are not recommending criminal charges as a result of the accident.
