Man Accidentally Shoots Himself Twice

February 25, 2012

From KCCI.com

REDFIELD, Iowa -- A rural Redfield man is being treated for two gunshot wounds after an attempt to shoot a raccoon caught in a live trap backfired Saturday.
 
The Iowa Department of Natural Resources said Larry Godwin, 68, was using a 22-caliber handgun to shoot the caged raccoon at around 11 a.m. Saturday when the bullet ricocheted off the cage and struck him in the lower abdomen on the right side. He dropped the gun and it fired again, shooting him again in about the same spot.
 
He was taken to Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines by private vehicle.
 
The DNR says the injuries are not believed to be life threatening.
