A Jacksonville woman’s peaceful Tuesday night was interrupted when she was jolted awake by a gunshot to her right leg, according to Action News Jax.
When she asked her boyfriend, Brian Murphy, who the culprit was, he pointed to someone right beside her: Diesel, his dog.
Murphy, 25, told Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office deputies Diesel woke him up for a late-night walk. When the pair walked back into the pitch black bedroom, Murphy saw a flash and heard a bang, the news station reported. He thinks his dog jumped onto the nightstand and accidentally set off his Springfield XD 40 pistol.
His girlfriend was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries.
