(WIDK By AnnaMarie Houlis) – This isn’t what he meant by his ‘guns.’
A 56-year-old weightlifter allegedly shot himself in the shoulder Wednesday night around 9:00 PM after dropping a dumbbell on a .22 caliber bullet in his apartment.
Police said the man’s claim is suspicious but not entirely implausible.
According to the LA Times, neighbors did not report seeing any potential shooters fleeing the area, either.
The rim on the dumbbell could have impacted the bullet with enough force that it shot out, but the situation is still under investigation.
