Police in New Hempshire say a man who shot himself in the leg this week may have been sleepwalking.

The victim, whose name is not being released because he is not facing any charges, was hospitalized in Concord Tuesday with a gunshot wound to the knee.

His wife, who reported the incident to police, told officers that he appeared to be in a state of sleep at the time and was awakened by the gunshot.

Police received a 911 call from a woman at around 12.30am Tuesday saying that her husband shot himself in the leg.

The woman told officers who responded to the couple’s home on Wilfred Avenue that her spouse appeared to be sleepwalking when he fired the shot, which struck him in the knee.

‘We’d like to know what happened and have more details, but the only witness was the person who was shot, and it sounds like he doesn’t know exactly what happened,’ Lt. Timothy O’Malley told the station WMUR.

O’Malley added that he cannot recall another incident involving a sleepwalking shooting.

Police are investigating to determine where and how the gun was being stored in the couple’s home, but no charges are expected to be filed.
