Doofus Of The Day #774

Today’s award goes to a particularly dumb crook in Detroit.

A man was killed at 11 p.m. Monday, when two men were reportedly assaulting a victim near the intersection of St. Mary’s and Elmira on the northwest side. “One of the men was pistol-whipping the victim when his gun went off, and his partner was shot in the neck,” Dolunt said.

Pistol-whipping someone with a loaded gun?  Now there’s a negligent discharge looking for a place to happen . . . and it found one!  Fortunately it hit the right guy (from the crime victim’s point of view, that is).

  1. I remember an earlier account of the same thing. One mugger holds the victim from the back while the other pistol-whips him from the front. Gun goes off and the man in back is killed. Man in front is caught and charged with murder.
