Say What Now? Man Accidentally Shoots Himself in the Bronx, Blames It on an Imaginary Black Man

News

20-year-old Arthur Palombo was arrested on Thursday after he accidentally shot himself in the stomach at a Bronx park and blamed it on an imaginary Black man.


via NYDN:

Palombo accidentally shot himself in the left side of the stomach about 10:45 p.m., police said. The bullet exited his left flank.

First responders took him to Jacobi Medical Center.

He told investigators he went to the park to show an old revolver he had in his apartment to a potential buyer he had met a few weeks earlier.

The buyer, however, shot down the $100 asking price and shot him with the piece as they haggled over the price, he claimed.

When pressed, Palombo, who is Hispanic, described the shooter as a black man with a bald head.

Cops searched the park and found the revolver.

When Palombo was released from the hospital, he was questioned by detectives again, this time admitting he was by himself and the gun went off accidentally in his jacket pocket.

Prosecutors charged him with weapons possession and filing a false report.

A judge ordered him held on $10,000 bail during his arraignment Friday, officials said.

At least in this instance the cops did their job and didn't automatically take Arthur's word for it. Knowing cops these days, they may have found a random Black man who they 'thought' was responsible and put him in jail.
