An armed 23 year old policeman in Moscow fell victim of his own carelessness. He decided to scratch an itchy spot on his nose with a gun and accidentally killed himself, the Moskovsky Komsomolets reports.
The tragedy happened in the court security facility. At 6pm the officers supervisor tried to connect with him over the phone to check on him. The sergeant did not answer his phone and the supervisor had to go see him with other officers.
The police found a locked door they had to break and the body of their colleague behind the door. The policemans body with a wound in the head was found under the desk.
The investigation ruled out a murder. There was no note that would indicate suicide.
The victim had been serving in police since 2007. He was single and was not registered with the staff psychologist. He was reported to be in good spirits on the day of the accident.
The sergeant allegedly scratched his nose with his gun and accidentally pulled the trigger.
This doesn’t pass the smell test.
Never have to worry about those Booglers again.
Reminds me of the bloody nose, courtroom scene in “Strange Brew”.
They’d buy that story in Chicago.
I hereby nominate him for a Darwin Award.
Darwin Award nominee?
i mean, really......there are options out there...
Does a Russian policeman in a room by himself keep his pistol in his hand, or did he draw the pistol and put his finger on the trigger specifically to scratch his nose? This story stinks.
He died, doing something stupid, the event was funny, few could ever duplicate his event, is was no doubt messy, there was little chance of survival, but it wasn’t caught on tape. Hmmm, I’d give him a nomination but I’m not sure if he wins.
You’re doing it wrong...
Maybe there’s a shortage....
Kinda like the anti Putin reporter who was found dead on the sidewalk outside the hospital after being arrested.
Cops said he was fine when they dumped him at the curb.
Did he have something to do with the Polish leader plane crash?
Perhaps he should use a chain saw next time.
It appears that he had a snoot full....
heck of an itch
