Woman, 63, shoots her own hand during an argument with relative over a Xbox console, officials say

A 63-year-old woman was arrested Monday after she shot her own hand during a dispute over an Xbox console, authorities said.

Bonnie Rucker, a Grand Terrace resident, was taken into custody on suspicion of trying to kill her relative, Scott Adcock, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department.

The argument over the Xbox broke out about 12:40 p.m. in a home in the 12000 block of Honey Hill Drive when Rucker allegedly pointed a loaded .357 caliber handgun at Adcock, threatening to shoot him, authorities said.

A struggle ensued, and the handgun discharged into Rucker's hand, authorities said.

Adcock was not injured in the shooting.

Rucker's hand was treated at Loma Linda Medical Center and she was later booked at the West Valley Detention Center.
