    A man accidently fired his rifle early Monday while trying to clean the gun, sending a bullet through the window of his mobile home and into the forehead of a passing motorist, killing him.

    The accident happened near 29th Drive and Deer Valley, according to Phoenix Fire officials.

    The victim is described as a man in his 60s. He was apparently driving a tow truck when the bullet hit him.

    Police say the truck continued down the road after the driver had been hit.

    The suspected shooter ran out and stopped the truck, but the driver was already dead.

    It's unclear what charges the suspect could face.

    Pointing it out the window and aiming at the driver? Still even if the guy was aiming at the driver do you know how lucky he would have to be to actually hit him in the head?

    If he was cleaning it and it went off and through the window than how would he of known it hit the truck let alone the guy in the head that he chased after the truck and stopped it? :squint:
