Man Shoots Himself And Blames False Shootout

A 49-year-old man from Mount Clemens, Michigan is facing felony charges after he made up a story about being wounded in a shootout while riding to a liquor store in a motorized car. The man, whose name has not been released, told police he was caught Friday afternoon in a shootout — but investigators were unable to find any evidence to support his claims.

Lt. John Michalke, of the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office said, “It never happened. We believe it was an accidental discharge of a weapon.”

The man suffered a gunshot wound to his left calf. He was taken to a nearby hospital as police tried to track down the shooters based on descriptions provided by the wounded man.

Police then found no evidence of a shooting and no complaints of gunfire. The man eventually admitted that he made up the story. After obtaining a warrant, police searched his home. They could not find the gun the convicted felon should not have been carrying.

The man started using a motorized scooter after suffering a stroke.
