RED LION, Pa. (WHTM) – No charges will be filed against a York County man who accidentally shot his wife inside their home last weekend.

The woman was shot in the bathroom of their Red Lion home. Police believe the husband suffers from a medical condition which may have been a factor.

Prosecutors reviewed the case and determined that charges were not warranted.

The woman was taken to York Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
