Woman aims at skunk, shoots husband

Fortunately, bullet did not damage any of his vital organs

Authorities say a Central Texas woman aiming for a skunk accidentally shot her husband when the bullet ricocheted.
 
Brazos County Sheriff Chris Kirk says the husband was expected to be released Monday from a Houston hospital. Kirk says the accident happened Sunday night at the family's house near College Station. The husband was inside.
 
The sheriff says the wife, who has a concealed handgun permit, came out of the home's detached garage and saw a skunk. Kirk says the woman fired a .45-caliber handgun at the animal but missed.
 
Kirk says the bullet ricocheted off a deck, went through the house's closed back door and struck the husband in the abdomen. Kirk says the bullet did not damage any vital organs.
 
Kirk declined to release the names of the couple.
