KOKOMO, Ind. -- Police said a Kokomo man accidentally shot himself in the genitals while robbing a convenience store early Tuesday.
Kokomo police said they were called to a Village Pantry store at about 4:20 a.m. after a call from a clerk. The female clerk told police that a man came into the store with a semiautomatic handgun, grabbed her hair and demanded cash and cigarettes before handing her a white cloth bag, WRTV-TV in Indianapolis reported.
The clerk said that as she retrieved the cigarettes, she heard a gunshot and turned to confront the man, who yelled that he had shot himself.
"The bullet traveled through his right testicle ... and then into the bottom part of his leg," Kokomo police Lt. Don Whitehead said.
Police said the man, whom they identified as 25-year-old Derrick Kosch, grabbed the bag full of cash and fled the store. In-store surveillance cameras showed that Kosch shot himself as he placed the gun into the waistband of his pants, police said.
Shortly after the robbery, dispatchers got a call from someone in a home located several blocks away from the store about a man who was shot. When officers arrived, they found Kosch. The home belongs to his grandmother, police said.
Kosch was taken to a hospital for treatment, and later arrested after police found the bag of stolen money in his grandmother's home.
But in his pants exploded
His sex life terminated
So much for future breeding...
