Dolan Springs shooting ruled accidental

DOLAN SPRINGS - A Dolan Springs woman survived a gunshot wound to the abdomen Sunday afternoon in what authorities determined was an accidental shooting.

Suyapa Calderon, 35, was taken to Kingman Regional Medical Center following the 3:20 p.m. incident and later flown by air ambulance to Sunrise Medical Center in Las Vegas.

According to Mohave County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Trish Carter, Calderon and her husband and son were leaving their home in the 18000 block of Ocitilla Road to hunt rabbits when the shooting occurred.

Calderon's husband climbed down an embankment and she slipped after following him. Her fall, said Carter, caused the .22-caliber rifle to fire a round.

The rifle was broken in two and was confiscated.

Calderon was listed in good condition as of Tuesday morning.
