ZTT Records boss Jill Sinclair is recovering in hospital after she was accidentally shot by her son with an air rifle.
Sinclair, 54, was hit in an artery by a pellet from her 22-year-old son's rifle during target practice in their Oxfordshire, England home on Sunday.
A ZTT Records spokesperson says,"Purely accidentally she took a pellet in the neck. She is stable but critical."
