A man who shot his ex-girlfriend in a hotel room told Mesa police he was practicing drawing his loaded handgun when it went off.
Amber Sungleton said all she remembers is not feeling good and going to sleep.
"And the next thing I know, I woke up and I was shot in my leg and he was freaking out, telling me, 'don't move' and he ended up on the phone with 911 and they came," she said. "At that point, I didn't even know what had happened yet."
Sungleton said detectives told her that from the angle of the bullet and where her ex-boyfriend was standing, it may or may not have been an accident.
Sungleton is in the hospital recovering from a hip fracture. Her ex-boyfriend was taken to jail, but has bonded out.
