DETROIT -

Detroit police still are investing, but at this point it looks like a terrible accident.

Local 4 is told a 24-year-old man at a home on Muirland Street may have been cleaning a handgun Thursday when it discharged. The bullet hit him in the hand and then struck a 20-year-old woman who lived in the home but was not a relative of the shooter.

Their relationship is not clear.

"The (bullet) went through her arm. She came out on the stretcher. I thought it was just a gunshot through her arm but it went through her side," said a neighbor who was outside at the time of the shooting.

The woman died at the hospital. The man is in stable condition.
