Eudora man who accidentally shot himself released from Lawrence Memorial Hospital

April 12, 2011


Eudora police said Tuesday morning that a man who accidentally shot himself Monday evening had been treated and released from Lawrence Memorial Hospital.

Sgt. Tom Willis, a Eudora police spokesman, said the investigation was closed and that no foul play was suspected. Willis said the man was home alone Monday in the 1000 block of Spruce Street when the gun accidentally discharged.

The man’s wife later took him to Lawrence Memorial Hospital. Hospital officials at 6 p.m. then notified police about the patient who had a gunshot wound. Police did not release the man’s name.

If he had multiple personality disorder could that be attempted murder?

I am sorry, but you do not accidently shoot yourself unless the weapon malfunctions. He was doing something stupid. Probably involved alcohol. Bad combination.

Wouldn't you be? And where did he shoot himself? I remember the story of the guy who slept with his gun. He half awoke and thought he saw someone at the foot of his bed and ended up shooting his own penis. Ow.
