DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa police say a 19-year-old is expected to recover after being accidentally shot in the head in Des Moines.

Des Moines police spokesman Sgt. Paul Parizek told the Des Moines Register that officers responded to reports of a shooting at about 11 p.m. Saturday at a house party south of Drake University.

Parizek said officers found bullet holes inside the home that appear to show a gun was fired in one room, passed through a wall and then struck the victim in the head in another room.

Parizek says a bullet was pulled from the wound. He says the victim will be fine, and it’s “kind of remarkable.”

Parizek says charges likely will be filed.
