    Man Shoots Self While Trying To Scratch an Itch with a Revolver

    A Fort Worth man trying to scratch an itch on his back used a revolver and accidentally shot himself.

    Jorge Espinal, 44, was drinking beer and playing poker around 3 a.m. Sunday in his home in the 3500 block of Montague Street, when he got up from the table and walked into another room, said Fort Worth police Lt. Kenneth Dean.

    “He told officers he had an itch on his back and grabbed the first thing he could get a hold of, which was a revolver,” Lt. Dean said. “The gun went off."

    Mr. Espinal went back and told his buddies that he shot himself. “They didn’t believe him until they saw the blood coming down his back,” Lt. Dean said.

    Mr. Espinal was taken to an area hospital, where he was treated and released with non-life-threatening injuries.
