An unidentified Chicago man, riding a Megabus in Madison, Wisconsin, shot himself in the junk early Wednesday morning. The 21-year-old passenger had a loaded pistola stuffed in the waistband of his pants. While adjusting it,
the gun fired he pressed the trigger, perforating his penis and one of his testicles.
His fellow passengers became understandably alarmed by the sound of the early morning gunshot inside the bus. Meanwhile, our marksman hastily retreated to the bus’s bathroom, no doubt in great pain. Minutes later, he emerged and fled the bus despite the driver pleading with him to stay for medical treatment.
Madison police and paramedics arrived and stopped the fleeing bleeder. The po-po also found his pistol in the toilet of the bus.
The Madison State-Journal has the story:
A 21-year-old Chicago man shot himself in the groin early Wednesday morning, while on a commuter bus stopping on the UW-Madison campus en route from Minneapolis to Chicago.
The bizarre shooting incident happened at about 5 a.m. on a Megabus that stopped at its normal bus stop on Langdon Street at Lake Street, Madison police said.
The unidentified victim apparently had a loaded handgun in the waistband of his pants, and the gun fired, sending a bullet through his penis and one testicle, said police spokesman Howard Payne.
