South Bend Tribune: Man urinating in South Bend alley accidentally shoots self
Note that the comments, most of which are negative, are directed at the gun and not the actions. I lose another drop of faith in humanity every time I see something like this, and another when I see people's reactions...Man urinating in South Bend alley accidentally shoots self
SOUTH BEND — Police say a man who went to the hospital Wednesday morning with a gunshot wound accidentally shot himself.
The 21-year-old man told police he had stopped to urinate in an alley between Vassar and Humboldt streets just before 3:30 a.m., when his gun accidentally discharged.
The man, who has a permit to carry the gun, took himself to the hospital, where police were called.
Police say the gun was apparently in the man's pocket, as there was no bullet hole on the outside of his jeans.
The bullet went through the man's upper thigh and exited below his knee. The injury is not expected to be life-threatening.
