Lowe’s shopper hurt when bullet in her purse exploded

A Lowe’s shopper in Pennsylvania ended up having to go to the hospital after a loose bullet in her purse apparently exploded and did some damage to her leg in the process.

Police confirm to the Williamsport Sun-Gazette that the woman did not have a gun in her purse or on her person as she strolled the aisles of the hardware store on Sunday.

“Something must [have] hit the primer of one of the bullets,” the local police chief tells the paper. “The bullet stayed in the purse, but its casing put a hole in the purse and caused a minor leg wound.”

The woman chose not to go the hospital right after the incident — possibly because the police would need to be called and then maybe it would end up in the local paper — but did, at the urging of her son, seek medical attention three hours afterward.
