No arrests in accidental shooting

Tigard Police say no charges will be filed after a 17-year-old girl was shot in the foot last week in her Tigard apartment.

According to police, the girl, whose name was not released, was in her apartment in the 9900 block of Southwest Walnut Street at about 12:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 5.

The girl’s 19-year-old boyfriend was in another room with a 17-year-old friend, Wolf said. The 17-year-old handed the 19-year-old a handgun, which fell to the ground and fired through a wall, striking the girl in the foot.

A neighbor hearing the blast called 911. The three teens were discovered at a nearby hospital.

Wolf said there was no intent, and the shooting appeared to be accidental.
