Man convicted of shooting himself in the groin


A man in Colorado has been convicted of shooting himself in the groin – despite insisting that he was actually trying to shoot a mugger.
David Leroy Blurton was convicted of illegal discharge of a firearm and an offence called ‘prohibited use of a weapon — drunk with a gun’ after investigators said that there was no evidence to back up his claims that he’d been attacked.
50-year-old Blurton claimed that someone had hit him on the back of the head, and that he was trying to defend himself, after he shot himself in the groin in a grocery store car park in Dillon, Colorado last year.
Prosecutors said that Blurton had been drinking at the time.
