Police say a gunshot wounded a woman inside a central Indiana Walmart store after a man's handgun fell from his pants and fired.
Columbus police Lt. Matt Myers says the 26-year-old woman was treated for an upper arm wound by medics at the store but declined to go to a hospital.
Myers tells The Republic that city Police Chief Jon Rohde was inside the Walmart store Saturday evening when he heard the gunshot and called for assistance.
Myers says a 56-year-old man told officers that his handgun was in a holster when it fell from his waistband. One bullet hit the woman who was pushing a shopping cart with her newborn son inside.
Myers says officers confirmed the man had a handgun permit and he wasn't arrested.
