There must be something in the water in Fresno, CA. Today's award is shared by two alleged gang-bangers there.
The first winner is Edgar Navarro-Chavoya.
Navarro-Chavoya started drinking beer while sitting in front of his apartment complex, still holding the revolver. He accidentally shot himself in the leg, causing non-life threatening injuries. The victim later identified him as being the person who pointed a gun at him.

The second winner is Randy McBride.
Fresno police say a reputed gang member shot himself with his own gun — the second such shooting in as many days ... Sgt. Tony Bustos says it appears that Mcbride was in a home when he heard gunshots, put a sawed-off shotgun in his pants and went outside to investigate. Bustos says when Mcbride tried to draw the gun, he pulled the trigger and shot himself.

Y'know, I can think of many things I've put in my trousers over the years . . . but I've never once had the ambition to stick a sawed-off shotgun down there! What's next - a bazooka?
(On the other hand, I'm sure the local cops are happy to find their regular clients and repeat customers are now shooting themselves, then waiting for pickup. Saves them a lot of hard work . . . )
