Woman cited after shooting gun to ‘find out’ if it was loaded
A 53-year-old woman was cited for discharging a weapon in city limits after she reportedly pulled the trigger to “find out” if it was loaded, police said.
Police ticketed Peggy Sue Mai-Fleisher, who reportedly found the gun on the ground Sunday morning at a trailer park near 42nd and Cornhusker Highway and decided to fire it to find out if it had bullets inside.
Police said a 49-year-old Kansas man in the same trailer park told officers he believed his handgun had fallen out of his bag, and that Mai-Fleisher had found the gun.
The .380 handgun was fully loaded with seven bullets before it was fired, police said.
