Woman hurt in spud-gun blast
June 27, 2006
A PERTH woman has been shot in the face by a spud gun as she peered down the barrel of the homemade weapon.
The 24-year-old received serious facial injuries when hit in the face with a solid paper ball after the gun accidentally fired.
Police said she had found her boyfriend's gun, designed to fire potatoes and other projectiles at high speed, in a shipping container in their backyard.
She picked it up and looked down the barrel as she placed it on the ground.
"But the spud-gun ignition switch fired and a solid paper ball hit her in the face," a police spokesman said.
Officers are yet to interview the woman, who is being treated in Royal Perth Hospital.
Her boyfriend has been summonsed to appear in court at a later date on a charge of possessing a controlled weapon.
