MIDDLEFIELD, Conn. (AP) - A Virginia woman didn’t have a very merry ending to her Christmas in Connecticut.

State police say 24-year-old Britny Koba of Virginia Beach accidentally shot herself in her left leg in Middlefield shortly after 8 p.m. Thursday. The former Meriden resident is being treated at Hartford Hospital.

Troopers say the accident happened when Koba was trying to unload her pistol in her car and it accidentally fired a 9 mm round into her leg.

State police haven’t announced any criminal charges.

Koba says on her Facebook page that the accident scared her and it wasn’t how she wanted to end her Christmas.
