Friday Fail: Squirrel Hunting Gone Wrong

Tools

By WSIL Manager

GAINESVILLE -- Our Friday Fail takes us to Florida. It's William Daniel Lloyd, 31.

He was trying to shoot a squirrel for dinner, but all he had was a BB gun. So he taped a 40-caliber cartridge to the end of the gun.

When he fired the gun, the BB hit the cartridge's primer, and the cartridge exploded.

Lloyd was hospitalized with shrapnel wounds in his upper arm and lower leg. He's since been treated and released. Police charged him with shooting a gun in public, and for being a felon in possesion of ammunition.
