Last updated on Saturday, April 6, 2013

(BLOOMINGTON) - Police in Bloomington are investigating what may have been an accidental shooting Friday afternoon.

The Herald-Times says firefighters were called to a home on a report of a man with a gunshot wound to the knee.

A 19-year old man who lived at the home told police he didn't realize his shotgun was loaded when he accidentally discharged the weapon and the round went through the bathroom door, wounding his roommate.

Officers took the gun into evidence, but say it's unlikely charges will be filed.
