Barber shot in buttocks when customer drops handgun

Kurt Voelkel, owner of Werner's Barber Shop in Parma, Ohio, was taking a break when a longtime customer came in for a haircut. As the customer was preparing to sit down he hiked up his pants and when he did a 9 mm handgun fell from his holster. When the gun hit the ground it discharged, sending a bullet through Voelkel's chair, his wallet, and into his buttocks.
Voelkel was taken to the hospital and released a few hours later. Doctors are still trying to decide whether or not to remove the bullet. "If I really get in there and push, I can feel it," said Voelkel, "But other than that, I can't - just the wound."
Voelkel added that the customer who shot him feels terrible about it and is paying for all of his medical expenses.
Ohh shoot.
