A Lincoln woman suffered serious injuries after being struck in the temple by a BB. Lincoln Officer Katie Flood says 18 year old Rachel Long was leaving her apartment with her boyfriend last night when a BB gun, which was handled by her roommate, misfired.
“Injuries are possibly life threatening, this is an unfortunate and tragic accident, it illustrates the need to handle firearms safely.”
Long remains in critical condition at a Lincoln hospital. No citations have been issued. It remains under investigation.
