It looks like a neighbor was wounded by a stray round. Not seriously, thank God! Other than that, it's a happy ending.

From the article:

The man's wife says he was asleep and the bullet came through the brick wall, through the living room, down the hallway, and into the bedroom.
Through the brick wall? What was the guy shooting?

I saw this on the news at lunch. I didn't see any brick, but it exited one house, entered another and went through a total of like 6 walls before hitting this guy in the leg... Not sure what he was shooting, but it definitely had some ooooomph behind it.

You would think he was shooting a rifle with that much penetration.

I do love happy endings as well.

Is it just me or does anyone else think of 'what if' their weapon had an accidental discharge when they holster it, unholster it, set it on a night stand, etc. at home? I'm always thinking about where the barrel is pointing, even with the safety on. If I can't point it at the floor (it is going on a night stand, in my shoulder holster, etc.), then I always make sure it is pointed at a brick wall (no window) or some other suitable backstop. I certainly don't anticipate my hollow point .45's going through the brick wall.

I not only think it, at some level I expect it to. Maybe it's me being relatively new to daily carry, but every time I touch my gun even in the holster I look at the safety and think of what's going to have a hole blown in it if it goes off.

According to the news it was a Glock assault rifle with a high capacity magazine and armor-piercing bullets.
