Old Man Fires At Snake, Shoots Himself

Florida - A 75-year-old Florida man was recovering after accidentally shooting himself while trying to shoot a snake. Police responded to a report of a man with a self-inflicted gunshot wound at a home in Volusia, Florida. When officers arrived on the scene they found 75-year-old Garrett Bauernschmidt suffering from gunshot wounds to two fingers on his left hand. His caretaker told police that she had come home to find a large water moccasin snake near the front door. Bauernschmidt got a .38 caliber handgun, fired one shot at the snake and missed. The gun discharged a second time as he manipulated the safety, injuring him.  More
