Woman Killed When Her Husband Accidentally Shoots Cannon Into Their Home

POTRERO (CBS) — A woman was killed early Tuesday when her husband, who had allegedly been drinking, accidentally shot a homemade cannon into the couple’s home.

Homicide detectives with the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department are investigating the 33-year-old woman’s death, which took place in the 25000 block of Potrero Valley Road.

Authorities say she was found dead at 12:15 a.m. after a cannonball fired by her husband and another man slammed into a residence at the Twin Lakes Resort mobile home park.

It appears the accident happened while the two men were tinkering with the cannon.

Officials say the area, which is near the Mexican border, is known for unusual activity.

A Cal Fire dispatcher told San Diego’s CBS8 that one of the two men was transported to a local hospital with injuries he sustained during the blast

There are certain kinds of accidental homicides that women just never do. This is one of them.

We need cannon control. Cannons kill people not trailer park boozers.

Always keep your cannon pointed in a safe direction.
Treat every cannon as if it was loaded.
Keep your finger off the fuse?? until you’re ready to fire.

Doesn’t mention what bore the cannon was or what the projectile was. If you’re going to “tinker” with your cannon, do it before it’s armed

Story doesn’t give much detail. If the range was more than 5 feet, I’d say accident

You are correct so the press will, most likely, refer to said weapon as an ak47 from here forward.

Well, so much for him selling the Cannon on Pawn Stars, unless he can sneak it out of the Evidence Room.
