Cat Causes Gun To Go Off; Owner Shot In Leg

Kimberland Crump Wounded Below Knee





.32-caliber KelTec pistol
SPARTANBURG COUNTY, S.C. -- A man is recovering from a wound in his leg that he says happened when his cat caused a gun to fire, deputies said.
Deputies were called to Spartanburg Regional Medical Center where a man was being treated for a gunshot wound just below his left knee Saturday evening.
The man, Kimberland Crump, told deputies that he was getting out medication that he stores in a gun safe when his cat jumped onto the safe, knocking off a .32-caliber pistol that was on top of the safe.
Crump said when the pistol fell in the floor, it went off and shot him in the leg. He said he wasn’t sure if the bullet hit anything else in the home.
Investigators checked out Crump’s home and said everything indicated that the accident happened as he described.

highly doubtful, guy was probably embarrassed about his accidental negligent discharge

anyone who has a kel tec knows how hard/long/bad that trigger is

Just because it was a pick of a keltec doesn't mean anything... I'll try and call the police dept and see what the gun was. Keltec is crap, but even I dont believe the gun went off after falling...I'm not doubting the cat story I'm doubting it was a .32 keltec as indicated by the article's picture not in writing.

Take the shot, shoot the cat in self defense. It's the only sensible thing to do. Just saying.

Default Update....on cat shooter

I just got off the phone with the Spartanville Sheriff's Office and they confirmed the weapon was indeed a .32 Keltec, however it was also confirmed that the man was a well known "Fu*&^%$ Idiot"

Basically, his story was good enough for the police, but I'm betting my money that the double-action Ket Tec did not go off when it fell off the safe.

liar liar leg on fire!

That's one hell of a story from a "Fu *&^*# idiot" hahaha!!! So he shot himself in the leg, then blamed it on the cat... Like that's any better. What a loser
