What appears to be an accidental shooting in Thomas Township has left two people wounded, including a pregnant woman.
Just before eight last night Thomas Township police say they responded to a residence in the 100 block of East Stark Road where Officers found two residents, a 30-year-old man and a 25-year-old woman, suffering from gunshot wounds. The man was shot in the hand, while the pregnant woman’s injury was to her abdomen.
Investigators said the two wounds were caused by one bullet fired from a 9mm handgun. Signs point to the gunshot having been fired accidentally by one of the two residents, though police declined to say which pulled the trigger.
Mobile Medical Response took both residents to an area hospital for treatment. Police said the woman’s fetus is expected to survive.
After police complete their investigation, they will send it to the Saginaw County Prosecutor’s Office for review and the issuance of possible charges.
Thomas Township officers and firefighters were assisted by Richland Township police and Saginaw County Sheriff’s deputies.
