PORT ORANGE -- A man who woke up this morning bleeding from a bullet wound to his forehead later drove himself to work, and then to a hospital, where he was in stable condition this afternoon after undergoing brain surgery, Port Orange police said.
Glen Betterley, 53, of 5267 Orange Ave., told police he woke up about 4:30 a.m. and noticed blood on his face but didn't know know where it came from. He asked his girlfriend, Emma Lorene Larsen, 65, if she was responsible but she could not explain it. So he washed his face and went back to bed.
When the bleeding continued and could not be stopped, Betterley told police he got up at 6:30 a.m. and drove himself to work to leave a message explaining he was going to the hospital.
The emergency room staff at Halifax Medical Center concluded Betterley had been shot and called police. After talking to him, police contacted Larsen by telephone to tell her they wanted to question her. A short time later, officers outside of Betterley's home said they heard a single gunshot. They forced their way into the house and found Larsen dead of an apparent gunshot wound to the head.
He went to work????
How the heck did he sleep thru that? Was he drugged?
obviously he had a harder head than she did
After getting shot in the head, you wash your face and go back to bed.
"After getting shot in the head, you wash your face and go back to bed."
I would've asked for 8 hours sick leave. Those bleeding heads always are a sign I shouldn't go in that day.
With girlfriends like this, who needs enemies?
just damn. unfrickingbelievable
So he was 53 years old, she was 65, and SHE SHOOTS HIM? You've come a long way, baby.
Made me laugh out loud.
Practice makes perfect.
Dang, man. That is quite a story.
This is not the first time I have heard a story like this. Sometimes people get shot in the head and are not aware of it.
There must've been brain damage. I know I wouldn't have gone back to sleep under those circumstances unless there was some kind of brain damage. Man, lucky guy (or unlucky guy, depending on how you want to look at it)!
Brain dead - lives with a hag that will shoot him, and then does not even know he was shot - brain dead - pin a do not revive sign on his chest and let him pass.
I guess she didn't like the present he gave her.
Practice makes perfect.
