Last weekend, two men in Columbus, Georgia were injured in two separate unintentional shootings.
27-year-old Carlos Williams was arguing with his wife. Williams went to pull a handgun out of his hooded sweatshirt when the gun unintentionally fired, hitting him in the stomach. The bullet came out his buttocks. Williams is still in the hospital but when he is released he will be charged with Theft by Receiving Stolen Property and Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon. He told police he wasn't planning on shooting his wife when he went for the gun.
51-year-old Samuel Cole was being driven to the hospital for treatment for mental issues when he started arguing with his 31-year-old son. His son pulled the car into a parking lot and Cole got out of the vehicle and started threatening to shoot his son. While trying to pull a handgun out of his waistband he shot himself in the groin. He was taken to the hospital, treated, and released. Cole has been charged with Aggravated Assault.
