Today going to a Missouri man who claimed he was shot in his "private" area. He told police that a suspect fired at him from his trailer park entrance and then took off. However, deputies found a shell casing near where this guy had been standing, indicating the shot hadn’t been fired from the park entrance.

It turns out he had accidentally shot himself in the genitals while retrieving the 9mm pistol from his car, when it went off. By the way, it was a stolen gun.
