Criminal Armed With Handgun Accidentally Shoots Accomplice While Pistol Whipping Victim
Well, no one said criminals were smart. In this case however, the stupidity of one criminal was actually fatal for this partner in crime.
According to Deadline Detroit,
An assailant died this week when his cohort’s gun discharged while the cohort pistol-whipped a man on Detroit’s west side, George Hunter reports in the Detroit News.
The assailant was killed at 11 p.m. Monday, when he and another man were reportedly assaulting a victim near the intersection of St. Mary’s and Elmira on the northwest side.
“One of the men was pistol-whipping the victim when his gun went off, and his partner was shot in the neck,” Assistant Police Chief Steve Dolunt told Hunter.
It’s currently unclear if the suspect who shot his partner was taken into custody and it’s also unclear what condition the original victim is in.
The identities of those involved have not been revealed.
Just another example illustrating that crime really doesn’t pay.
