Gun tucked in waistband shoots man in genitals
Reported by the Press Enterprise of Riverside California 3-22-2014. Colton police report that a man, Jeffrey Cordova, apparently tucked a gun into his waistband and accidentally shot himself in the genitals. The man went to the Arrowhead Regional Medical Center at 7:46 PM March 15, 2014 with a gunshot wound to the groin. Police were called, and the man “refused to cooperate with investigators, but an examination of the man’s clothing revealed the bullet came from inside his pants, the detective said.” The man was admitted to surgery and is expected to survive. Trouble is not over though - he is wanted on suspicion of parole violations for assault with a deadly weapon, and charges of illegal firearms possession are being investigated. There is no report on the future of his reproductive organs, but this does not look promising. We can only hope he is removed from the gene pool.

Nun Gives Birth, Says She Had No Idea She Was Pregnant. What, Immaculate Conception?
Fans of Discovery Health’s “I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant” will love this: a Salvadoran nun gave birth in Italy this week, claiming she had absolutely no idea she was pregnant.
She said she was in her convent in Campomoro when she felt stomach cramps and was rushed to a hospital in the nearby city of Rieti, AFP reports. She ended up giving birth to a boy.
Italian news agency ANSA reported that the 31-year-old nun named her son Francesco, which also happens to be the name of the current Pope (and TIME’s 2013 Person of the Year.)
Her fellow nuns back at the “Little Disciples of Jesus” convent said they were “very surprised” about all this. And the convent’s mother superior, Sister Erminia, said, “It seems she was not able to resist temptation.” You said it, Sister.
Point Gun at Own Head, Pull Trigger…Man Kills Self With Gun During Demonstration On Gun Safety
A man from Independence Township, Michigan, accidentally shot himself to death on Monday while teaching his girlfriend about gun safety, the Oakland Press reports.
The 36-year-old man, whose name has not been released, was showing his girlfriend how his three handguns are safe when they aren’t loaded, according to the Detroit Free Press. He was attempting to demonstrate the safety of the handguns by holding them to his head and pulling the trigger.
The third gun fired, and the man was struck in the head. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Three children ages 7, 10, and 12 were in the home, but did not witness the shooting, according to reports. The man’s girlfriend told authorities he had been drinking most of the day before the incident took place.
This isn’t the first time a gun safety demonstration has gone wrong. In January 2013, 18-year-old Florida resident Alexander Xavier Shaw died doing a similar demonstration. Richard M. McLean, a 22-year-old from Michigan, died in a similar fashion in June 2012. Missouri resident James Looney, 40, was also teaching his girlfriend about gun safety when he shot himself in the head in September 2009.
Police ‘like’ wanted Pa. suspect’s Facebook post
FREELAND, Pa. - Police in one northeastern Pennsylvania town really “liked” this Facebook post.
Officers in Freeland arrested 35-year-old Anthony Lescowitch on Monday night, less than two hours after he shared a wanted photo of himself and taunted police for not being able to find him, the (Wilkes-Barre) Times Leader (http://bit.ly/1bg0cOK ) reported Tuesday.
Lescowitch shared the wanted bulletin minutes after Freeland police posted it on the department Facebook page Monday night, authorities said. He was being sought on assault-related charges.
An officer pretending to be an attractive woman then messaged Lescowitch, according to police. Lescowitch refused the offer of a drink but eventually agreed to meet for a cigarette, and was arrested at the agreed-upon location.
After the arrest, police posted this message: “CAPTURED!!!!!! SHARES OUR STATUS ON FACEBOOK ABOUT HIMSELF, CAPTURED 45 MINUTES LATER.”
Lescowitch, of Drifton, remained in the Luzerne County Jail Tuesday. Court records don’t list a defense attorney for him, but show he faces a preliminary hearing Jan. 29 on charges including aggravated assault, reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct stemming from an incident July 14.
