  Woman’s boyfriend tells police gun went off when dog jumped on nightstand.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The old journalism adage is that “dog bites man” isn’t a story, but “man bites dog” is. Nobody ever said anything about “dog shoots woman.”

According to a Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office incident report, a man told police that his dog shot his girlfriend in the leg.

It happened late Tuesday night at a home on Patuou Drive West in the Herlong neighborhood on the city’s Westside.

Police said a man and a woman were sleeping when they were woken up by the man’s dog, Diesel.

The man told officers that he got up to let the dog outside, and when they came back inside, Diesel walked back into the dark bedroom where the man’s girlfriend was still sleeping.

The man then saw a “flash and a bang” — it’s believed that the dog jumped up on the nightstand, causing a Springfield XD40 to discharge, according to the report.

The man then saw a “flash and a bang” — it’s believed that the dog jumped up on the nightstand, causing a Springfield XD40 to discharge, according to the report.

The 25-year-old woman was hit in the leg. She was taken to Orange Park Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

The woman told police that she didn’t know how it happened. She said she was sleeping and was awakened by a throbbing pain in her leg.

Neighbors said they were left confused by the freak accident. Donald Hanlon has lived on Patou Drive West for 35 years, and he said Tuesday night was the most commotion that the neighborhood has ever seen.

“Lights, sirens, big commotion — I just wanted to know what was going on. I was just weirded out by the entire street being taped off and what the crime scene unit was doing,” Hanlon said. “I was just overwhelmed by the commotion and come to find out that something like that happened.”

News4Jax went to the home across the street from Hanlon’s house, where the incident happened, but no one came to the door.

Neighbors, including Hanlon, said they feel like it was an accident.

“I think, either way, there was a weapon involved,” Hanlon said. “I don’t think it was intentional, but I don’t think the dog could do it.”

The dog’s owner does have a child, but the child was not at home at the time, News4Jax was told.

The JSO report obtained Wednesday is purely an information report. News4Jax crime and safety analyst Gil Smith said it’s possible that officers will continue the investigation by testing the gun, for example, to see if it’s possible the dog could have fired the weapon accidentally.

Smith wasn’t surprised by the case, saying, “stranger things have happened.”

  27. Established solutions relating to Smartphone Spyphone can be checked out on our
    website. Some of these applications you can get as
    spy on mobile SMS free applications. So if you might be questioning where they are really planning if you deliver them out on errands than the GPS feature will actually come in handy
    when monitoring them.

  28. This could be a good way of detecting if any spy app is really
    present on your Android phone or not. They offer
    features like Two Wash Courses (Gentle & Normal
    Wash, twin water inlets, spin shower, two wash courses (Gentle and Normal wash), and wheels for easy
    mobility in some models. This IP address then can be mapped to general
    geolocation data.

  29. This could be a good way of detecting if any spy app is
    really present on your Android phone or not. This computer software
    installs discreetly and no matter who is working with
    the cell phone they will not detect the cell phone monitoring software installed.

He shames me with his prolific output. He's like the Robert Pollard of music bloggers.

  31. not, I’ve the same problem as you. My Problem is the time is too short. When I see that you already have problems, even though you don’t have rheumatism in the finger, I wonder how this will work.I’ve built up my bridge construction, after a minute of comingthe big “Bang” and everything is broken. Unfortunately, I myself am not the fastest, I know. There should be an option/setting to waive points. if you can’t operate in time.

  35. ” I have no idea what Elliot was thinking….”Yeah, but I like where he is going with it. This blame the Gentiles thing is very attractive! First we blame them for persecuting us, and then we blame them (wait, I can improve on Elliot) for infecting our pure and peaceful Jewish Zionism with all their Gentile violence and colonialism!

  36. Muy bueno el comentario Patricio!! y muy bueno el de Fernando también!

En länk från en engelsk PR4 sidaLänken ska till en svensk sida och placeras på liknande sätt i båda alternativen. Utöver PR (och de länkar/trust som det innebär) så är det bara språket som skiljer sajterna åt.
