POMONA (CBSLA.com) — Authorities in Pomona are hoping the public can tell them how a very drunk shooting victim got wounded.

Tommy Dominquez, 41, was shot once in the lower extremities but has been unable to tell investigators how he was hurt.

Officials say Dominquez will survive his gunshot wound and believe he was possibly shot in front of a bar.

Authorities got a call just after 1:30 a.m. from Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center where Dominguez was taken by private vehicle.

Officials went to the alleged scene of the shooting — the 1200 block of East Missing Boulevard — and found shell casings in front of a bar.

I had a friend in college who had his hand severely stomped by a very angry person. Many broken bones. He had no idea how it happened.

He drank less heavily after that, so he learned something.

shot once in the lower extremities

Sound like prior to being shot his brain had dropped down between his legs which would of course effect ones memory.

***He had no idea how it happened.***

I had a friend in the USAF who had a nice chrome plated revolver in perfect condition.

Coming back from leave his pistol was scratched and scraped something awful. He could not remember what happened to it, except that he gotten drunk. When he sobered up it was all scratched up.

Several months later he got drunk and suddenly remembered, and told us how he went fishing, got drunk, shot his pistol till empty, then realized he was so drunk he could not find his way home, fell in the creek, lost his fish and fishing pole, went to an old Colored man’s house and asked if one of them could help him home.

They realized he was drunk and was a MEAN drunk! so they backed away from him. He got mad pulled his gun and ..snap,snap,snap. Empty.

The old man’s daughter then ran in the house and called the sheriff who stopped him in the field and asked him to give up the pistol. Instead he threw the pistol down in the Georgia clay and that is how it got all scratched up.

So now we knew.

When he sobered up, he again could not remember what happened.

Then there was my mother-in-law who told us how she lost her perfect teeth, but that is another story.

Last night I stumbled in to a bar room I met a girl with a pint in her purse She was cute as two speckled puppies And I said Ben you could do worse Then I walked across a room full of tables Walked across her table too And I flopped myself down in a chair And said hi there She whispered my name is Mabel And all I could say was hi there I said permit me to introduce myself Ben Colder here She said it ain't been no colder here than anyplace else I had her almost persuaded What happened to the doodle-doodle-do... piano... thank you [From: http://www.elyrics.net] To slip- strip herself of her pride Almost persuaded to slip me a drink on the side Then we danced and we danced and we danced and we danced That is I thought I was dancin' somebody stepped on my hand Then I looked in her eyes and I saw it The reflection of my wedding band And I thought that sure is strange I ain't even married What it was it was my wrist watch I had her almost persuaded Once more there Argus To come and be my own Smart alec (Almost persuaded) Then her boyfriend came and made me go home Lyrics from eLyrics.net

Craziest thing I ever saw occurred in college. Guy had a beautiful new Z-28, he and his girlfriend were quite inebriated, he refused to drive. Girlfriend was infuriated by this, snatched his keys away from him, ran and jumped in the car, burned rubber all the way across the parking lot and was still burning rubber after nailing a metal street lamp post head on. At that point we suspected something more than alcohol because she clearly didn’t feel a thing, and really didn’t associate the ruined car, still smoking, with anything she’d done. She didn’t remember it the next day either and accused her boyfriend of trying to blame her for totalling his car. “Luckily” for him it happened in front of nearly a hundred people, so that didn’t fly. The fool eventually married her. Wonder how that turned out, lol?

How do we know he didn’t accidentally shoot himself?

My guess is someone shot him.

I doubt it. I bet one of those automatic assault rifles automatically assaulted him.

So didn't the sheriff arrest him? Didn't the sheriff retrieve the gun from the mud and confiscate it? Didn't your friend have to sober up in the pokey, after being drunk and disorderly, trespassing on private property, and then assaulting and attacking (albeit with an unloaded gun) a peaceable Colored family?

Your friend's story, as it stands, doesn't pass the B.S. test!

Well it may not pass the BS test to YOU but the man sat there and told us the story to our face. There were others at the table with us.

I had known him for years from Basic till discharge. He could get drunk on three beers and spent a large amount of time off duty drunk.

NOW, think back to 1968! Here are MORE details.

White man with gun whose family is a friend of the white GA sheriff.

Gets arrested and instead of being taken to Jail, he was taken home where he sobered up.

The gun was recovered from the dirt and given back to the man’s family who promptly returned it to the man when he was sober.

He told me he was so glad he had shot up his loads before he pulled it on the black farmer and tried to kill him.

So I really don’t give a hoot if YOU believe it or not. He sat there and told us the story when drunk, and I saw and handled the revolver before and after he got back from leave. That is when I asked him how it got so scratched up. The scratches still had red GA clay in them.

When sober he could not remember a word of it.

Maybe he shot himself pulling his pistol out of his baggy pants and now can’t remember who shot him.

Take it easy, Ruy! I didn't cast aspersions upon your honesty! I merely noted that your friend's story - as it stood - awakened the skeptic in me.

Now that you've filled in the missing details, it sounds much more credible.

Regards,
