Man accidentally shot as wife plays with gun, police say

A man was hurt early yesterday when a handgun that his wife apparently mishandled went off while the couple was in the bedroom of their West Toledo home, police said.

Jeffrey I. Seretsky, of 4205 Garrison Rd., was in fair condition yesterday in Toledo Hospital. The wound was not believed to be life threatening.

Police said the couple was in bed about 3:45 a.m. when Tracy L. Seretsky took her husband's handgun from the closet and began playing with it. A bullet passed through Mr. Seretsky scrotum and into a nearby dresser in the room.
