Man accidentally shoots himself after throwing gun at cockroach to kill it

Recommended Posts

A man accidentally shot himself after he threw his gun at a cockroach in an attempt to squash the insect, police say.

 

The unnamed 50-year-old man told police in Detroit, Michigan that he tried to kill the bug on Tuesday morning by throwing a shoe at it, only for a revolver hidden inside to go off and send a bullet flying in his direction.

 

After throwing his sneaker at the cockroach, the man’s gun fell out and fired, striking him in the foot.

 

Authorities said the man was taken to a local hospital and is in stable condition following the incident.

 

It is unclear whether he ended up successfully squashing the cockroach or not.

 

Detroit Police Department says it has not been able to confirm the man’s version of events, Freep reports.

Haha.

Does the State of Michigan have a “Stand Your Ground” Law?

 

Although in this case, the roach could pretty easily make the case it acted out of a fear for its life.

Not saying that dropped or thrown guns don't go off accidentally, but it is pretty rare  unless the hammer was cocked back.

This dont sound right to me . 

More like, he took a ladyboy back to his room , he refused to pay because he wasnt a she , the ladyboy then grabbed his gun and shot him as he was about to kick her in the face .

   The ladyboy gave a brown envelope to the Police , paid a 500 Baht fine and a Wai and two weeks in a temple , expensive watches, submarines and the red bull heir

The older revolvers could go off when an impact was made against the hammer. Detroit, Chicago, alot of these old industrial inner-cities have always had an abundance of older & cheaper & unregistered guns like saturday night specials in small calibers that would have had this type of firing pin that was attached to the hammer.

 

But I liked toofarnorth’s post for good humor.
