Queenstown accidental shooting victim to be discharged from hospital
A woman accidently shot in her Queenstown home is due to be released from hospital.
Senior Sergeant Paula Enoka said the woman – aged in her 40s – would be released from hospital this weekend.
"The victim is recovering well," she said.
Police had interviewed the person believed to be responsible for the shooting and the victim and inquiries were continuing, Enoka said.
No charges had been laid.
The injured woman was flown by helicopter from her Shotover Country home on April 10 following the incident which involved a shotgun being accidentally discharged in her garage.
The woman was "extremely lucky" there was not a worse outcome, Enoka said last week.
"It could have been a couple of centimetres either way and we would be talking about a very different situation."
