Milwaukee Woman Facing Charges After Shooting Herself At Fond Du Lac Water Park

(Fond du Lac) A Milwaukee woman is being charged after accidentally shooting herself in the leg at a Fond du Lac water park Monday. Authorities received reports that a 32-year-old woman received a self-inflected gunshot wound around 12:23pm at the Fondy Sports Aqua Park. Sheriff’s Sergeant Brennan Wagner says further investigation showed that the woman was not in lawful possession of the firearm at the time of the incident. He says the woman had the weapon inside of her purse when it became wet inside the Aqua Park. When she returned to her vehicle to dry it, the weapon accidentally discharged. The woman was transported by City of Fond du Lac Ambulance to St. Agnes Hospital for treatment and was released. Wagner says charges of Recklessly Endangering Safety and Carrying a Concealed Weapon are being referred to the district attorney’s office.
