There are rules of safe gun-handling, and they are there for a reason. This guy needs a refresher course. Tulsa police: Suspected burglar shot his alleged partner in crime
So they thought it would be a good idea to rob a house. (A very modest house by the look of things.) But someone was home when they tried to break-in.
Police say the homeowner’s girlfriend was at the house when she heard someone breaking into a back window.
They say she armed herself and started yelling that she was calling 911.
As the two miscreants were beating a hasty retreat, one guy decided it would be a good idea to fire a shot at the house. For spite? Who knows. But he ended up shooting his luckless buddy in the arm. The shot hit an artery.
The wounded guy showed up at a hospital. He will be arrested after he has recovered from his surgery. The cops are still looking for the idiot with the gun, though one would think the guy who got shot might want some revenge.
All the intended victim had to do was arm herself, call 911, and announce what she was doing to make these guys think that they picked the wrong house. If the idiot hadn’t shot his partner, this story would probably have never made the news, because what would the reporter say? How would they paint a picture of guns as dangerous things if no one got hurt?
