Man sleeps through gunshot to the head
Associated Press ^ | 05/21/07

Michael Lusher apparently is a sound sleeper. A small-caliber bullet struck the 37-year-old Altizer man in the head as he slept Sunday morning, but he didn't realize it until he awoke nearly four hours later and noticed blood coming from his head, said Cpl. R.H. McQuaid of the Cabell County Sheriff's Department.

The bullet that struck him was one of five that someone sprayed across his mobile home and truck at about 4:20 a.m. Sunday, McQuaid said. The one the struck Lusher apparently lost velocity as it traveled through two walls.

"We're just glad he didn't suffer any life-threatening injuries with a head wound," he said.

Lusher came home from a night on the town about an hour before he was shot while lying in bed, McQuaid said.

He remained hospitalized at St. Mary's Medical Center on Monday. His condition was not immediately available.

After a night on the town? Wow, I don’t think I’ve ever been so intoxicated that I would sleep through taking a bullet in the head, but I could be wrong.

Seems to be the pattern with him.

LOL! I guess sometimes that works to his benefit. Unless, of course, it’s during the traffic stop...

That’ll teach him not to run out on his bar tab.

Notice he was shot at 4:20 a.m. but had only been home for an hour. Sounds like a model American.

He had to have been on some heavy-duty sleeping pills or nursing one hell of a hangover!

Like this guy! I think I found his fridge!

True, but I can tell you that some mornings after an intoxication bender ... I have desired a bullet to the head. [/sarc]

Hite is always a good route to go if you want a headache, but it really isn’t even in the same class as OB Lager....

A friend of mine from HS got married. After drinking one night, he woke with a hangover. When staring at himself in the mirror, he noticed that blood was running down both sides of his face.

During the night, his wife shot him in the head with a .22. The bullet skidded under the scalp and came out the side.

Needless to say, he couldn’t find hide nor hair of her because she had split during the night leaving him for dead.

She went to prison. He got a divorce.

"Man sleeps through gunshot to the head"

If there's a 'cause & affect' there, I'm tempted to try it. I have not had a good night's sleep in ages (but maybe it's just the lack of 'gunshots'... ;>)

Kurt Cobaine also slept after a gunshot wound to the head. The trouble is that he didn’t wake up.
