A woman accidentally shot herself in the legs early Saturday morning in downtown Colorado Springs, according to police.
CSPD was called when a woman showed up at Memorial Hospital around 2 a.m. with gun shot wounds.
Initially police were told that the woman was shot by an unknown person in a parking lot downtown, but later they determined that the woman caused the accidental shooting. Police say the woman was getting into the passenger side of her boyfriend's car on Tejon St. and knocked a loaded handgun onto the floor; the gun went off and fired a shot through both of the woman's calves. She's expected to be okay.
While investigating, police arrested the woman's boyfriend on an unrelated warrant.
