“A woman was reportedly hurt when a gun went off during a robbery early Saturday morning near a South Bend restaurant,” southbendtribune.com reports, suggesting that the concurrent events were not coincidental. “Police responded shortly before 2 a.m. to the 2000 block of Miami Street, where the woman, 22, and a 25-year-old man said they were robbed by three male suspects, at least one armed with a gun. One of the suspects . . .
hit the woman on the head with his gun, causing the weapon to fire. A bullet grazed the woman, leaving her with a minor injury.
Did you know that if you hit someone in the head with a gun hard enough the damn thing goes off? Neither did I.
The robbery reportedly took place near Jovi’s Restaurant & Lounge.
So let’s change that old saw to “avoid stupid people in stupid places doing stupid things with stupid guns.”
