Stupid criminal shoots accomplice while trying to free him

Ah, the best laid plans of mice and thieves...
A juvenile attempting to steal a bottle of "booze" from a Colorado Springs liquor store was accidentally shot in the foot by his partner in crime.

The incident happened about 9:30 p.m. Thursday at 2935 Delta Drive, according to the Colorado Springs Police Department crime blotter.

As the booze-swiping juvenile tried to leave the store, the business owner locked the front door, preventing the robber's flight. A "male" waiting in the parking lot saw his partner's plight and fired a gunshot through the glass door, apparently to shatter it and free the would-be robber. But the plan misfired when the shot hit the juvenile in the foot. That boy was treated at a hospital.
I don't care who you are...that's funny!


  1. The good news is that location is just a few short blocks from the El Paso County Criminal Justice Center, aka "da hoosegow". Not a nice neighborhood.

  2. Stupidity is often its own reward.

  3. I agree with Rev, and Ed both!

  4. There is some justice in the world!
