Sunday, Sept. 10
8 p.m.
Officers responded to the Baptist Health Medical Center emergency room, where a Robin Lane man was being treated for a possible gunshot wound. The victim, 21 years of age, wouldn’t tell the responding officer much about what happened, so the officer paid a visit to his home and spoke with the victim’s brother, who said he was in another room when he heard the gunshot. Police determined, based on their investigation, that the victim was “playing” with a firearm in front of the bathroom mirror when he accidentally discharged the weapon. The injury to the man’s left hand was ruled to be a pinch injury caused by the weapon’s slide.
