FREMONT TOWNSHIP, Mich., July 15 (UPI) -- A Michigan woman who tried to use a shotgun to "make a point" during a family argument ended up shooting herself in the face.

After grabbing the gun, the Fremont Township woman slammed its butt-end onto the floor, causing the gun to go off and fire into her face.

When police responded after receiving reports of a gunshot victim, they found the 51-year-old with a facial wound. She reportedly told officers that she wanted to use the firearm to "make a point."

The woman was taken to St. Mary's of Michigan in Saginaw and she is expected to make a full recovery.

Michigan police will continue to investigate the incident, but no charges have been filed at this time.
