HOUSTON – A gun discharged and injured a woman after a man accidentally dropped it Thursday inside a northeast Houston restaurant, police said.

The Derringer fell out of the coat pocket of a 66-year-old man at about 8:30 p.m. inside Raffa’s Waterfront Grill on West Lake Houston Parkway, police said.

The 71-year-old woman was shot in the rear end and transported to Ben Taub Hospital in stable condition.

Police said the man was licensed to carry a concealed handgun and no charges are expected to be filed at this time. 

The case, however, will be considered by a grand jury.
