HARRISON TWP -

A 50-year-old woman is recovering after being accidentally shot inside a Harrison Township home registered to UAW Vice President General Holiefield.

In a statement, the Macomb County Sheriff's Office said deputies were called Monday night to a home in the 39000 block of Mazuchet on the report of an accidental shooting.

Deputies said the 60-year-old homeowner told them he had been cleaning his 45 Desert Eagle semi-automatic handgun at the kitchen table when it accidentally discharged.

The homeowner's wife was hit in the abdomen. She is hospitalized, but is expected to be OK.

Deputies said the homeowner told them he and a group of friends had just returned from shooting at an indoor range in Roseville and he was trying to "clear" the gun when it went off.

The sheriff's office would not confirm the homeowner who fired the gun was Holiefield, but Local 4 has learned the house is owned by him.
