The incident occurred Saturday evening at a restaurant in Camden, about 20 miles northeast of Syracuse.

State police say an off-duty Otsego County deputy's handgun discharged while he was seated at a table.

The bullet went through the bottom of his pants, ricocheted off the floor and struck a 38-year-old woman and a 10-year-old girl.

The woman suffered a minor injury to her right foot, and the girl was treated for a laceration to her right thigh and elbow.

State police are investigating.
