One of the injuries, according to the report, was accidentally self-inflicted. The man explained he was trying to fix the BB gun when it went off and hit him in the hand.
"[The Bethlehem man] advised he got up and put the BB gun down so he could tend to his hand," the deputy noted in the report. "[The Bethlehem man] stated as he was walking away he felt a BB hit him in his buttocks."
When he turned around, he saw his daughter's boyfriend aiming the BB gun at him. Afterwards, the boyfriend put down the gun and he and the Bethlehem man went to sleep.
"[The Bethlehem man] could not say why he did not call the night before or why he didn’t even say anything to [the boyfriend] about shooting him," the report stated.
The next day, the man went to the hospital fearing he had broken his hand when he shot it. While there, he decided to report being shot in the buttocks. He did not indicate if he wanted to pursue charges, but did ask that a report be filed.
The deputy spoke with the doctor who indicated the man's hand was not broken.
"The doctor advised the injury was just a flesh wound," the deputy wrote.
No further action was taken.
