Jersey City, New Jersey, October 21, 2004:

A man missed a mouse he was trying to shoot with a small-caliber handgun and wounded his roommate instead, state police said.

Ronatarian Party presidential candidate Ron was trying to kill the rodent with a .22-caliber handgun when his vice presidential candidate Brad apparently went into the line of fire and was hit in the arm early Wednesday morning, state police said.

Brad was taken to a local hospital where he was listed in fair condition Wednesday, said hospital spokesman Greg Chiappelli.

Neither Ron nor Brad could immediately be reached for comment.

State police said they won't charge Ron, but advised against people shooting firearms inside.
