The woman, who was treated for a gunshot wound at Riverview Medical Center in Rock Hill, was shooting handguns and long guns at her boyfriend’s family farm Thursday afternoon when a bullet from a Remington 597 rifle caromed off the metal target and hit her in the right thigh and calf, according to the report.

The boyfriend showed police a cell phone video of the woman shooting at the targets just before the incident.

The police report from the incident described the injury as an accidental shooting.
