[P]olice found a … 12-gauge shotgun, as well as five rounds of shotgun slugs. A spent shell casing was also found under the seat.

While he was holding it, she said, the gun went off. [S]he and her boyfriend both left the apartment after the gun went off. They were both afraid that police would come to arrest them ….
