Woman Wounded By Gun In Underwear

Thu., Aug. 22, 1996

A woman who forgot she had stuffed a loaded gun into her underwear was wounded when it went off in a bingo parlor restroom, police said.

Carolyn Hutchinson, 35, was playing bingo Tuesday night at a social hall when she went to the restroom and the .25-caliber pistol fell out of her panties. It hit the floor and discharged, lodging a bullet in her calf, police said.

She was treated at University Hospital and released Wednesday.

Hutchinson was charged with carrying a concealed weapon.
