AUSTIN (KXAN) — A woman accidentally discharged her gun on Thursday while she was watching her children’s swim lesson at the YMCA.

Buda police arrived at the YMCA at about 8:30 p.m. and found the woman, Kamila Brudi, waiting for them outside. According to the police report, Brudi said she was rummaging through her purse when she accidentally set off the .38 caliber Derringer pistol. She said she usually keeps the pistol in her car for self defense but forgot to take it out of her purse before going into the YMCA.

The police report says she immediately reported the shot to the manager when she saw people around her were curious as to what caused the loud noise. Police said Brudi did not have the weapon in a holster.

Officers saw no intent to discharge the weapon, so they issued her a citation for Discharge of Firearm where Prohibited – a city ordinance violation.
