Accidental shooting in East Vancouver



CKNW is reporting that "What was initially reported as a shooting on Vancouver’s downtown east side Saturday morning was actually a self-inflicted accident, according to Vancouver Police. A man was taken to hospital after 2:30 a.m. when police found him on the ground in front of the Maple Hotel, 177 East Hastings St. suffering from gunshot wounds. Following interviews with investigators, police say it turns out the man had accidentally discharged the firearm on himself."

Word has it that the nature of the self inflicted injury was similar to the one created by a Hells Angels associate in Australia. Nobody said criminals were very smart. Control the muzzel and don't put one into the chamber until you're ready to fire. Idiot.

Just like that accidental shooting at a Surrey injection site. It's a good thing they gave them a clean needle before the shooting. Our good intentions have turned into criminal culpability.

  1. Wound vs. Wounds, single vs. plural.....

    You have to be a special kind of moron to ND (negligent discharge)into yourself twice. One would think the effect received from the first round would obviate the desire to repeat the act...but who knows, maybe up there each hole is considered a wound....so an entrance and an exit would would be two in that case...at the end of the day, don't ever ever rely on the media for accurate information (semi pun intended....oh, wait "semi"....wow, did I manage to put a pun into the pun reference itself? I don't think I've ever managed that before. I'll bet Mr. Negligent Discharge feels exactly the same way, except with more pain. And more holes.

    1. I'm assuming the plural is a typo. Word is the guy shot himself in the groin. I can't see him doing that more than once.

    2. Wow, I'd nominate this guy for a Darwin award, but it would have to be a special category I think....The Darwin Awards are traditionally given to people who found a way to remove themselves from the gene pool....which this guy has done, albeit not fatally as is usually the case with these awards. Yet maybe we speak too soon, when he realizes what he's done, he may be moved to finish the job. Unfortunately for the rest of us, criminals sticking a loaded gun in their waistband pointed at their junk doesn't happen often enough to make a significant impact in the next generation, or lack of. If only there was some way to interest the criminal underclass in Russian Roulette....unfortunately no one appreciates a good wheel gun anymore. Perhaps we could provide them? Sort of like safe injection sites.
