He's Lucky He Didn't Blow His Nuts Off

Charleston, SC police arrested a teenager after he accidentally shot himself:

Charleston police on Friday arrested a 17-year-old accused of accidentally shooting himself in the leg at his ex-girlfriend’s home.

Thomas Ancrum is charged with second-degree burglary, unlawful carrying of a firearm and discharging a firearm within city limits, jail records show.

A 40-year-old woman at the apartment told officers that her daughter’s ex-boyfriend walked into their home uninvited and shot himself after family members asked him to leave.

Investigators found a semi-automatic pistol at the home and a spent 9mm shell casing, an incident report states. The gun had been in Ancrum’s waistband when it discharged, police spokesman Charles Francis said.


Probably a striker-fired plastic pistol, Glock most likely, and carried Mexican-style. Usual Suspects™ are willing to spend thousands of dollars on gold teeth grills and clothing, but won't shuck out $100 for a holster.
