Wasn't sure where to put this, but:
TULSA, Okla. -- Tulsa police say a man accidentally shot and killed himself during a home invasion robbery.
Police say 35-year-old Paul O'Farrell was found dead inside the home on the city's east side about 5:40 Thursday evening.
Officer Jason Willingham says detectives determined the robber was inside the home when he fell, accidentally shooting himself.
The residents were questioned and released by police.
The perpetrator is - er, was - a citizen
He was armed
He foiled (his own) crime by use of a firearm

Battle Plan (n) - a list of things that aren't going to happen if you are attacked.
Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

+1 for him! He had the ability to remain calm and deliver a head shot despite the fact that he was off balance and falling. Very nice!
How many of us could pull off a head shot during the stress of a robery AND while we were falling? You can only get that type of skill and outcome from extensive training and good solid tactics.

Yea, well...the perp's kin will probably sue the victims for having a slippery floor, thereby wrongfully causing his death. And get away with it. ********.

Brings back memories of this movie when the sheriff held himself at gunpoint.

Does this go down as a win in the BG column or the GG column? Now I am really confused???
Guess I need to make another column.
