Couple Facing Charges For Playing With Gun

Pa. man says girlfriend shot him while playing a dangerous game.

A central Pennsylvania man is recovering from a broken jaw after prosecutors say his girlfriend shot him as the couple played a dangerous game with a gun.

Authorities in Dauphin County say 29-year-old Ryan Martin and 20-year-old Erica Clayburn face charges after the incident last month in Hershey.

First Deputy District Attorney Fran Chardo says the game involved Clayburn holding the gun with her eyes closed and Martin going somewhere in the room. Chardo tells WHTM-TV Clayburn would
the pull the trigger when Martin said the word "gun" this time it was loaded.

Clayburn and Martin are both charged with reckless endangerment and conspiracy. Clayburn is charged with assault.

Phone numbers for both suspects could not immediately be located. A preliminary hearing is set for next month.
