A man told police that his dog was responsible for shooting his girlfriend while she was sleeping on Tuesday night.
Brian Murphy told officers that he let his dog, Diesel, outside after the animal woke him up and 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.
According to ABC 13, Murphy’s girlfriend, Summer Miracle, had been shot in her sleep.
Murphy claimed that “Diesel jumped up on the nightstand, where (Murphy’s) gun was sitting, and it went off, shooting Summer in the right leg,” according to police.
Miracle told authorities she was asleep when the bullet struck her and that she wasn’t sure how she was shot.
