Newlyweds, 1913.

Mistakenly Shot His Wife with a Gun

Because he mistook his wife to be a robber, Sam Aki, an engineer for the steam engine of the Pioneer Mill in Lahaina, shot his wife by mistake, and the bullet pierced her body although it is believed that she is not facing danger and will escape death.

This shooting by mistake took place this past week. The wife woke up to pull down the window while it was raining, and that is when she was mistaken for a thief, like what is being heard; but to his surprise, it was his own wife.

The woman is twenty-one years old, and they have been married for only seventeen months.
