An East Texas man accidentally shot himself in the head recently. The man shot at an armadillo, hit it, and the bullet ricocheted, hitting him in the head. He was sent to the hospital where he was treated for minor injuries. This happened around 3 a.m., Thursday morning, 30 July, in the town of Marietta, Texas.
There are no reports on the armadillo. Believe it or not, this is not the first time that something like this has happened this year. The first time was in April, down in Georgia. The bullet ricocheted off the armadillo in that case, cutting through the wall of the shooter’s mobile home and hitting his mother-in-law. She suffered only minor injuries even though the armadillo was not as lucky.
