An Indiana man accidentally shot himself and his wife Sunday evening while cleaning his gun.

Phillip Vincze thought the weapon was clear of bullets when he pulled the trigger and shot himself through the hand, said Elkhart County sheriff’s deputies.

The bullet then struck his wife, Jennette Collins, in both legs, deputies said.

Vincze and his wife were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

The shooting, which deputies described as an accident, remains under investigation.
