A woman called police to say her gun had accidentally gone off and shot three people inside a car about 7 p.m. Tuesday at East D Street and Wiley Avenue in Tacoma, police spokeswoman Loretta Cool said.

The 25-year-old woman who called police suffered a gunshot wound to her hand, Cool said. A 31-year-old woman and another 25-year-old woman also suffered gunshot injuries, one to the stomach and the other a graze wound to the back, Cool said.

None of the injuries initially appeared to be life-threatening, Cool said. Cool said police had not yet confirmed what happened, but that they were not looking for any suspects.
