WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) — A woman who reported being shot last week at a Williston Walmart actually shot herself.

The Forum reports (http://bit.ly/14Ezq3U) that court records show Alexandra Simon is charged in Williams County District Court with reckless endangerment, discharging a firearm in city limits and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Authorities found Simon in a nearby bathroom Friday, and she told authorities she had been shot by a man. When an officer found a pistol in Simon's purse, she reportedly said the shooting could have been an accident but she didn't remember.

Officers say they also found a spoon with white residue consistent with methamphetamine inside Simon's purse.
