Suspect in downtown shooting being treated for self-inflicted wound to testicles...
The Oregonian ^ | January 29, 2014 | Maxine Bernstein

One man from Tuesday night's downtown Portland shooting remains hospitalized with a gunshot wound to his leg, while the 40-year-old suspect is being treated for an accidental, self-inflicted gunshot wound to his testicles, police said Wednesday.

An apparent robbery attempt between the two men who were neighbors led to the shooting just before 8 p.m. in the parking lot of an apartment building in the 1400 block of Southwest Park Ave, police said.

During the dispute, the 40-year-old man pulled out a gun and shot the other man in the leg, police spokesman Sgt. Pete Simpson said. The wounded 32-year-old man ran over to the Safeway on Southwest 10th Avenue and Columbia Street for help. He was later taken to the hospital with a leg injury.

As the suspect fled the scene, he accidentally shot himself in the groin, police said.

"The suspect's wound is consistent with somebody putting a gun in his pants,"  Simpson said Wednesday night.

somehow ...I got the impression that he had used a shotgun....which would have made the self inflicted wound fairly difficult..

Unbelievable. Are the gun makers going to have to put warning signs on the stock that says “Please point the weapon away from you...be careful if you want children.”

“An apparent robbery attempt between the two men who were neighbors”

Some years ago a bank robber sued the Oakland CA police for defaming and ridiculing him when they arrested him. It seems when he robbed the bank he stuffed the loot down the front of his pants including the explosive dye pack.

The pack not only contained dye but used an M80 like explosive which detonated in his groin area. Needless to say when the money was recovered the robber came up “short” and the police were laughing and commenting on his “situation” The suit went nowhere. Stupid is as stupid does.

For the pent-fectra, make a stop in Eugene OR and Olympia and Bellingham WA.

That will hit all the covens of hippies and their off spring. Sort of a bucket list journey.

He may not be a Darwin candidate, unless he managed to shoot both beyond repair.

But he’s facing burglary with a firearm, and assault with a deadly weapon.

He’s going to miss a few blackberry pickins.
