New York, Oct 28 (THAINDIAN NEWS) The world’s judicial system has seen several instances where people have committed grievous crimes including murder while sleepwalking.
However this story might be as shocking and it is serious. Police have ruled that a man might have shot himself in the leg while he was sleepwalking!
The man earlier reported to the police that he has been shot after saying he woke up to a loud “bang”. However when police carried their investigation into the incident, they realized that the man, 63-year-old Sanford Rothman might have caused the injury to himself.
The police say Mr. Rothman keeps a 9 mm handgun near his bed and it is believed that is what he used for the shooting. Police say when the incident happened, Rothman who is on prescription drugs was alone in the house. Police have ruled out the influence of alcohol and drugs in the incident.
The incident happened at Boulder and the man who was injured as result of the shot has been treated and discharged. The incident happened on Tuesday morning and the police say Rothman had no clear memory of the incident that could have easily ended his life.
Hope he gets well soon and find a better place for his gun.
