It's times like this that I cringe when I say I'm from Indiana. We don't always produce the best and brightest... Hey - let's just hope he's not part of our community, eh?
KOKOMO, Ind. -- Police said a man accidentally shot himself in the genitals as he robbed a convenience store early Tuesday morning.
The female clerk told police that a man came into the store with a semiautomatic handgun and demanded cash and cigarettes before handing her a white cloth bag.
The clerk said that as she retrieved the cigarettes she heard a gunshot and turned to confront the man, who yelled that he had shot himself.
Police said the man grabbed the bag full of cash and fled the store.
In-store surveillance cameras showed that the man... shot himself as he placed the gun into the waistband of his pants, police said.
