Remember when we said there was a shooter on the loose in Kennewick? 

Turns out the victim was shot by his own gun. It probably went off in his pants (possibly shorts because it's been so hot) and that's why he got shot in the leg.

We just got an update from Lt. Clem of Kennewick Police Department  informing us of this.

That's why police said they didn't have a description of the suspect at the time. We apologize for causing any unnecessary concern.

The man has since been released from a local hospital. At least it was his leg (though some people do bleed out from leg wounds) and not a more sensitive location like a previous story this last week.

Anyways, I'm sorry and I hope your refund is honored at the pitchfork store.
