A man was "playing around" with his gun in his apartment near Nashville, Tennessee when he accidentally shot his neighbor in the apartment below him through the floor.

The situation happened around 11 p.m., and reports show that the woman living in the apartment below 22-year-old David White was struck in the left shoulder after the bullet went through his floor, through her ceiling, and into her body.

The woman was asleep in bed with her husband, and six feet away from the bed was the couple’s one-year-old baby asleep in a crib.

Also in the house at the time of the incident was the couple’s six-year-old child.
