The alleged shooter is expected to be collared.
Police were called to a home west of Fouraker Drive just before 11:30 p.m. on a report that a 25-year-old woman had been shot in their bedroom.
The boyfriend said he was sleeping next to his girlfriend when Diesel woke him up. He took the dog outside, then went back inside with the dog leading the way into the dark bedroom. Just after the boyfriend walked in, he saw a flash and heard a bang. He said he thinks Diesel jumped up on the nightstand where his gun was sitting and it went off.
The boyfriend called 911 and put a towel on his girlfriend’s bleeding leg. The girlfriend told police she was awakened by a throbbing pain to her right leg, not sure how she was shot.
Now I’m no detective, but I have an idea about how she was shot. For those of you unfamiliar with pistols, they do not go off by themselves. You see, firearms have a little mechanism called trigger pull weight, which is the amount of pressure needed to fire the weapon. Babies, for example, would not be able to fire a Glock 17, because their fingers are not strong enough to pull the trigger.
Alternately, dogs do not have fingers, and their paws are too large to fit inside the trigger guard, so pulling a trigger is, well, impossible. But hey, I give the guy an A for effort. This bullshit story blows “The dog ate my homework” out of the water!
