GA Man Kills Armadillo; Ricochet Gunshot Hits Mother-in-law

CBS/AP

April 14, 2015

LEESBURG, GA - Authorities say a south Georgia man shot an armadillo, but ended up accidentally wounding his mother-in-law when the bullet ricocheted off the mammal known for its hard shell.

Lee County Sheriff's deputies tell WALB-TV that 54 year old, Larry McElroy, fired his 9 mm pistol at the armadillo Sunday night.

Deputies say the bullet killed the armadillo, but, bounced off the animal, hit a fence, traveled through the back door of the mother-in-law's mobile home and the recliner in which she was sitting, striking her in the back.

McElroy's 74 year old mother in law, Carol Johnson, suffered injuries described as non life threatening. Lee County sheriff's investigator Bill Smith said she was walking around and talking afterward.

"Just the circumstances, just all the way around, the whole situation was unusual," Smith told WALB-TV.

Lee County Sherriff's deputies say McElroy was about 100 yards away from the home when he shot the armadillo.

Smith told WALB-TV that using a shotgun would have been a better idea.

"I really think if they're going to shoot at varmints and whatnot, maybe use a shotgun.. with a spread pattern with a lot less range," Smith said.

No charges were filed.

Are you thinking he shot the mil and it bounced off her and hit the poor armadillo?

Me, too!

I cannot find a picture of Larry since he wasn't charged.

I don't know which religion to which this man subscribes, but it looks as if he may have gotten it right.

Next time you shoot your mother-in-law, use a shotgun
