A Davie man was hospitalized on Sunday for injuries after a gun his girlfriend was cleaning went off and hit him in the abdomen, police said.
Kristi Ellis, 40, told police that at 4 a.m. she's couldn't sleep and to make her boyfriend, 40-year-old Michael Allih, feel better she decided to clean his .38 revolver, said Sgt. Christopher Chastain, Davie Police spokesman. The gun went off twice and one bullet hit him in the abdomen.
He was rushed to Memorial East from his home at SW 63 Ave. Police said the wound doesn't appear to be life threatening.
