Shot Rings Out in Ohio Jail Cell

A woman was taken into custody after police said a gun that she allegedly brought into the Ross County Jail discharged while she was in a holding cell.

Victoria Lundy, 41, of Cleveland, was taken to the jail after police reports indicated she was being questioned for possibly firing shots on Warner Avenue on Sunday evening.

Lundy was taken into custody for driving with a suspended license. Officers later found that she had a gun on her after the .25 caliber pistol went off in a holding cell, the Chillicothe Gazette reported.

According to police reports, another woman in the cell said that Lundy used the bathroom several times and when Lundy sat on the bench, the gun went off.

While checking the gun, an officer observed “it had off white-colored liquid substance on the gun with red specks. It appeared to be consistent with vaginal fluid,” according to police reports.

No one was injured in the shooting, the newspaper reported.

Lundy was also charged with improperly discharging a weapon, illegal conveyance of a weapon and carrying a concealed weapon.

She later admitted to the shooting on Warner Avenue, the newspaper reported.
