Fight over speeding car ends with Virginia man shooting self in groin, police say
A man apparently speeding in Norfolk, Va., accidentally shot himself in the groin after he waved a firearm at bystanders who told him to slow down, police told FoxNews.comI know I've yelled at cars speeding through my neighborhood to slow down. When your kids are riding their bikes on a suburban side street, with the speed limit of 30 MPH, it drives you crazy to see folks traveling at rates nearly double that. Apparently folks in that neighborhood felt the same way I do, and yelled at this guy to slow down. He doubled back around and tried to scare them with a handgun, and in the process of retrieving it from his Plaxiholster, he shot himself.
Rhonney Jacobs was speeding through the neighborhood when he was flagged down by two men, Norfolk police said. He made a U-turn and confronted one of the men, police said.
IN THE GROIN.
I hope he permanently removed a few items necessary for procreation, because someone this stupid doesn't need to spawn.
It sounds like he doubled around, got out of the car and confronted the men, and then went for his gun. It's entirely possible that they saw him reaching for his firearm and grabbed his arm, resulting in him pulling the trigger and shooting himself. In any case, it sounds like he got precisely what he deserved - I just hope he doesn't go back to that neighborhood looking for retribution, as I fear he will.
In any case, it's a reminder to always be mindful of surroundings and the worst possible scenario.
That is all.
