If only granny had been armed:
A South Carolina woman was recovering on Monday after her 2-year-old grandson reportedly shot her in the back.
Rock Hill police reported on Sunday that officers responded to the call on Sunday and found that a 40-year-old woman in the front passenger seat of an orange Chevrolet Camaro had suffered a gunshot wound to the back.
Police said that a 4-year-old boy had gotten his hands on the revolver and discharged it as the car was going through the intersection of Ogden Road and Heckle Boulevard. The driver of the car, who was the child’s great aunt, said that she heard the shot and then turned to see the boy holding the pistol with both hands.
And THIS is exactly the reason why it would be a nightmare having everybody walking around with a sidearm waiting to get all John Wayne the moment they smell an incident occurring.
Houston police say that an armed man’s attempt to stop a carjacking went terribly wrong on Saturday night when he shot the vehicle’s owner in the head, then fled the scene.
According to KHOU Channel 11 News, the shooting took place around 11:15 p.m. at a Valero gas station in north Houston.
Police officials say that two men jumped the owner of a Chevrolet pickup truck and absconded with his vehicle.
As the men struggled with the car-owner, a passerby produced a gun and fired multiple shots, missing the thieves but striking the victim in the head.
The shooter quickly gathered up his shell casings from the pavement and fled the scene.
The injured man was rushed to a nearby hospital where he is currently in stable condition.
Florida…. It happened in Florida:
ESTERO, Fla.- A man is in the hospital after shooting himself and crashing his car in a road rage incident.
Deputies say the confrontation began near Constitution Boulevard and U.S. 41. A woman was attempting to write down a male driver’s license plate number when he pointed a handgun at her vehicle.
Once the two cars neared the Corkscrew Road intersection, the sheriff’s office says the man then appeared to point a rifle at the woman.
The man continued heading down Corkscrew Road when he ended up crashing into the guardrail and somehow shot himself.
“The white male suspect did point what appeared to be a rifle at the female victim. Somewhere in that exchange, the suspect sustained a self-inflicted gunshot wound which resulted in the scene you see here,” said Lt. Scott Lineberger.
