5 wounded in today's gun negligence; man shot roommate during home invasion

Teen accidentally shoots himself after firing shots at Cleveland officers 

Cleveland, Oh  (2-25-16) - A 16-year-old boy is being treated at a local hospital after accidentally shooting himself in the leg while running from Cleveland officers.

Police sources confirm to WKYC that the teen fired shots at the Fourth District Police Station in the 9300 block of Kinsman Road.

Two police officers, who were sitting inside their cruiser outside of the police station, were uninjured. Bullets did hit the district building, though.

We're told that the cruiser's lights were on when the boy fired multiple shots around 10:40 p.m. Wednesday.

The officers were able to catch the teen on foot after spotting him near a Shell gas station.

Officers administered first aid on his injured leg until paramedics arrived at the scene. Police say the teen gave conflicting statements about how he was shot, but also report the entry / exit wounds in his thigh are consistent with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Charges are pending in this case, which remains under investigation.

According to the Houston Police Department, it happened just before 5 a.m. Thursday at the Home Wood Apartment Homes, located in the 2500 block of Webster near St. Charles.

At that time, two unknown males kicked in the door to an apartment unit and entered the unit. There were two males asleep inside the apartment were woken up by the intrusion.

One of the two residents grabbed his shot gun and went to the living room, at the same time his roommate was heading to the living room from his bedroom.

When the resident with the shot gun saw the suspects in the dark, he shot at them. However, his roommate was crossing at the same time, and he ended up shooting his roommate in the side.

The two suspects were startled and fled the scene.

The accidental shooting victim was taken to a local hospital in stable condition.

Sanford man, woman arrested on charges of child neglect with great bodily harm

Sanford, Fl  (2-25-16)  A man and a woman were arrested Tuesday on child neglect charges after investigators said a young girl was shot in the hand in a Sanford home.

Aaron Davis, 26, and Devolia Sims, 23, are both charged with child neglect with great bodily harm, according to police. Davis is also charged with unsafe storage of a firearm.

"They determined that the juvenile was unattended in a garage and appeared to have been accidentally shot by a firearm," Bianca Gillett, of the Sanford Police Department, said.

Investigators said Davis and Sims rushed the child to Central Florida Regional Hospital, but their stories didn't match up when questioned. They said Sims said she was not in the garage in one statement and that she was in the garage in another.

Police said Sims is the mother of the child.
Police said they found drug paraphernalia and a number of storage units of ammunition in the garage of the home.

The child’s maternal grandmother said the girl is still in the hospital and she will take care of her once she’s released.

Davis and Sims were released on bond Wednesday.

Police have not released the address where the incident occurred.

HEMET: Teen girl shot; boyfriend arrested

Hemet, Ca  (2-24-16)   A 17-year-old girl was shot Tuesday, Feb. 23, and her 19-year-old boyfriend was arrested several hours later after Hemet police determined her injuries weren't consistent with the initial story that the gun accidentally discharged.

The shooting was reported about 11:45 a.m.  an apartment in the 300 block of West Latham Avenue in Hemet.  When police arrived, they learned that friends had taken the girl to the hospital, Lt. Dean Evans wrote in a news release.

She was hit in the upper torso, but her injuries weren't life-threatening and she was stable on Wednesday, Evans said.

Officers initially were told that the victim was shot when someone dropped a gun and it went off.
Because her injuries weren't consistent with that story, detectives took over the investigation and determined that her boyfriend, Timontae Antwon McDonald, had shot her on purpose after an argument, Evans said. He was arrested about 8:30 p.m. at the police station, jail records show.
McDonald was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and is being held at the Southwest Detention Center, with bail set at $1 million.

Man shoots self in leg as revolver falls in restroom

Albemarle, NC  (2-23-16)  An Albemarle man suffered a gunshot wound Saturday after his handgun discharged while in the restroom at the Handi-Mart.

Edmund M. Bachner, 24, was struck by a bullet in the lower leg at 2:21 p.m. and taken to Stanly Regional Medical Center for treatment, according to Albemarle police.

Bachner was carrying an older-style .22-caliber revolver at the time of the mishap in the Burleson Square convenience store/restaurant, Capt. David Dulin said.

“Apparently when he dropped his pants the revolver fell out of its holster and hit the floor on the revolver’s hammer, causing it to discharge,” Dulin said.

The restrooms are located on the restaurant side of the building. Few customers were inside the restaurant at the time of the shooting, since it was after the lunch hour, said Myra Whitley, restaurant manager.

“It sounded like the commode lid slammed shut,” Whitley said. “It really wasn’t that loud.”

Once Bachner exited he told patrons he had accidentally shot himself, she added.
