Shreveport police say one sister was shot and another arrested after an accidental shooting.
Conchetta Rhymes was accidentally shot by her sister, Alicia Rhymes, Sunday afternoon, while playing with a handgun. Conchetta Rhymes was driven to the hospital with a bullet wound to the stomach.
Police say detectives, granted permission to search the room where the shooting occurred, found the gun, about 3 ½ pounds of marijuana and $3,000 in cash. Alicia Rhymes was booked with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute while in possession of a firearm.
What's your opinion? Dealing pot and having a gun "accident" is a no-no, while just having a gun "accident" usually merits no charges.
Does anyone else find that backwards?
