A man practicing a quick draw at a life-size poster of Don Michael Corleone accidentally fired a shot that hit the "Godfather" movie mob boss in the shoulder, and the slug went through the wall of his apartment, striking his neighbor's flat-screen television, police say.

Travis Hood, 27, was taken to the Washington County Jail and accused of recklessly endangering, said Washington County Sheriff's Office spokesman Sgt. David Thompson.

He has also been charged with first-degree criminal mischief and unlawful use of a weapon, according to the sheriff's office website.

The shooting took place at 8150 SW Barnes Road, Unit C202 about 2:50 p.m. Wednesday. Hood reportedly used a .357 Magnum.

There were no injuries. Except to the 40-inch high-def TV.
