Man accidentally shoots himself in testicles

SEATTLE (WA) - A man accidentally shot himself in the testicles at Lowe's Home Improvement store in Lynnwood Sunday afternoon, police said.

The man's handgun, which was in the waistband of his pants, went off at about 12:30 p.m. — an apparent "accidental discharge," according to Shannon Sessions, a Lynnwood police spokeswoman.

"It made a loud noise and scared a lot of people in the store," Sessions said. "I believe he shot himself in the testicles and he also had some injuries to his leg and foot. He was obviously in shock."

Nobody else was hurt and no one appeared to be with the man, she said.

Police and fire responded, and the man was rushed to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle before police had a chance to interview him extensively. Sessions had no further details about the man.

Lynnwood police are continuing to investigate but "at this point it does look like it's accidental," Sessions said. A manager at Lowe's said store personnel are not commenting on the incident.

"accidental discharge"

is that supposed to be a joke?

Good for him, I wish more gun lovers would do this.

I wonder what church he goes to?

If I was writing the headline:

Guns don't shoot yourself in the testicles. People shoot themselves in the testicles.

yet people rarely shoot themselves in the testicles any other way, bunky.

Man, I hate it when that happens.

When sack tapping gets hardcore.

I hope it happened before he reproduced. Definitely a candidate for the Darwin awards, if he was too stupid to make sure the gun's safety was on.

Everyone's missing the bigger question here. Why did he have his gun with him after church? Does he need to tote a weapon to Sunday service in case the sermon is not to his liking? Or in case the pot luck dinner is a little off? Or what if Jesus really does come back, and he needs to shoot the bastard before he can be judged?

Can we still call him a gun nut now?

by Anonymousreply 1306/01/2010

he was treated with duct tape and released.

Yes, r13. He use to be nuts about guns. Now he's a singular gun nut.

Gun nutless.

If his testicles had had guns, they would not have been harmed.

That's just nuts!

Fortunately, he was within the parameters of the "Stand Your Groin" law.

There were a couple of high school kids committing armed robberies in Portland, OR over a decade ago. After one of the robberies one of the guys jumped into their stolen get away car and the gun went off and blew his nuts off. They ditched the car and went to the ER. The cops found the car with the blood and matched it to the guy at the ER.

They were the High School president and vice president and they both did something like 10 years in a maximum security prison.

I belive it made America's Most Wanted.

Given male sensitivity about their genitalia, I've often wondered why so many carry their pistols in a way that will almost certainly blast a hole in them if they make one wrong move.

by Anonymousreply 2101/04/2013

Yes. But is he cut or uncut?

Guns....the stupidity never ends!

Why on earth would he have a gun shoved into his pants pocket? Most gun owners with permits generally don't go everywhere with an unholstered weapon which also has the safety off inside of they're pockets, it makes me think he was up to no good.

He truly deserves a Darwin Award.

The Darwin award went to the NRA already.
