Colsaun Bailey, the 17-year-old alleged owner of the gun, was arrested, though police said they did not believe he fired the weapon, The Journal News reported Wednesday.

One bullet hit her in the forearm, hip and thigh, authorities said. Police said her wounds did not appear to be life-threatening.

That's one amazing bullet (can't remember the Seinfeld quote)

Then why in heavens name would you arrest anyone? If you MUST arrest - arrest the oven.

Perhaps she was trying to bake in in a cake, in the old "Files for Felons" tradition. Set the temp a bit too high...

A likely story. Sounds like a second shooter to me. Was it a double oven? Call Arlen Specter!

"We are operating on the assumption that nobody picked up the gun and fired it,"

Better check for gremlins in the ovens. If none are found, ban all ovens.

Better yet, gun to bullet, if it's too hot in the oven get out"!
