Police continue to investigate what might have been an accidental shooting of a township resident started by an argument about a family pet.

According to police, a 41-year-old woman and her husband became embroiled in an argument about a dog at 1:33 a.m. April 1 at their home in the southwest part of the township. The police report alleged the husband brandished a .45 caliber handgun and threatened to shoot the dog.

Police report that a struggle ensued and the gun discharged, with the round striking the woman in the right calf. The victim was transported to Milton S. Hershey Medical Center for treatment, police noted.

Details about her condition were not reported.

The investigating officer said a person in the home at the time told police the shooting was accidental.

The case has been assigned to the township’s criminal investigation team and remains open.

Donna Intrieri-Condran, 58, of the 2000 block of Faith Street, Steelton, has been charged with simple assault and harassment following an argument with her husband at 7:07 p.m. March 26, district court records note.

According to police, she struck her husband in the face while the couple was in a car in the area of West Harrisburg Pike and First Street. He reportedly suffered an injury to his face but no medical attention was requested or provided.
