A man accidentally shot himself after he threw his gun at a cockroach in an attempt to kill it
The unnamed 50-year-old man told police in Detroit, Michigan that he
tried to kill the insect on Tuesday morning by throwing a shoe at it,
but a revolver hidden inside the shoe went off and sent a bullet flying
in his direction.
The man threw his sneaker at the cockroach and the gun in it fell out and fired, striking him in the foot.
Authorities said the man was taken to a local hospital and is in stable condition following the incident.
