    Dirt bag overpowers police investigator, takes his gun, kills officer and then shoots himself in the head. Twice. Must have been practice the double tap and had lots of muscle memory.

    Actually.....it is possible, and I have seen it before. The second shot comes from a nerve impulse that causes a contraction in the muscle. It has happend in cases before.....

    Ha!

    A department I was with actually had a case like this once, and I have reviewed two more since that one. First time I saw these I went "Huh??"

    Then a medical examiner explained why it is not as uncommon as people think.

    It happens. One of my co-workers had his neighbor kill himself. First shot was to the side of the head but the bullet came out the forehead and didn’t kill him, second was under the jaw but aimed to the side and just blew the jaw off. Third time he got it right.

    I agree with Ghostmaker, I've seen it more than once too. One, guy shoots himself in the head, figures out that it hurt and he was still alive, and calls 911. Another does the same, blew both is eyeballs to smithereens, now lives blind and horribly disfigured. The was another who shot himself under the chin with a 20ga slug. His mother called 911... Guess who answered the door (minus the lower portion of his face) when we arrived? One I had fairly recently killed his wife, then turned the gun on himself. He didn't have the guts to pull the trigger again, so he went next door to ask the neighbor to do it. I arrested him in the neighbors front yard for murder. He was able to talk and confessed to everything while medics got him ready for transport. There was another where a guy shot himself through the temple, set the gun down on the table in front of him, and added another paragraph to his suicide note before he died.

    Odd and kinda cryptic, but it does happen. A lot.

    Oh yeah, I almost forgot. This isn't a story about self defense, therefore it doesn't belong here. But, because it seems to be educating a little bit, I'll break my own rule and go ahead and move it.

    We had a young guy in town over a year ago who held up a local jewelry store.....wound up killing the owner then himself. First shot removed his lower jaw and part of face....then he tried to cut his own throat with a knife he was carrying......2nd shot to the head finished him according to local reports.
