A young woman suffered a minor injury when she accidentally shot herself in the arm at her Portola Valley home Wednesday afternoon, a San Mateo County sheriff's spokesman said Thursday.
Deputies responded to the 100 block of Goya Road around 2:30 p.m. and found the woman, who claimed to have been shot by a man who she said had broken into her home.
However, investigators later determined the woman had accidentally fired the weapon herself and sustained a "grazing wound'' to her arm, Lt. Ray Lunny said.
He said the Sheriff's Office is not pursuing charges against the woman.
