We were all set to razz on this old man in the police blotters for accidentally shooting himself with a pistol while investigating what he thought was strange noise coming from his basement, but then...
Well, just read on.
SELF-INFLICTED GUNSHOT, PAULDING BOULEVARD: An 82-year-old Brook Park man accidentally shot himself in the thigh Sept. 29.
The man thought he heard noises in his basement, got scared and grabbed his pistol. He put the gun in his lap and mistakenly thought he had the safety on when he accidentally fired the weapon. After shooting himself, the man cleaned the wound and went to bed.
When he woke up the next morning in pain, he went to the hospital for treatment and officers were alerted to the incident.
Bravo, good sir. Bravo.
