Apparently, a Utah man who was attempting to kill a mouse in his apartment chose to do so with a gun (because that apparently made sense to him), only he missed hitting the mouse but wound up successfully shooting one of his three roommates. When the cops showed up they discovered that another of his roommates (a 34-year-old man) was apparently having an on-going relationship with a 13-year-old girl (who was hiding in a closet in the basement), and arrested the guy for child rape. The fourth roommate slept through the whole thing.
Taylorsville Police Sgt. Tracy Wyant told Deseret News that the first roommate, 27, had been trying to kill a rodent when he missed and the round went through the kitchen wall and struck a second roommate, 28. “After the gun was fired, both the roommate and Paul heard a scream,” Wyant explained.
Seriously, you can’t make this stuff up.
