Pinched! And here we thought gang violence was a major concern in Chicago! Now Chicagoans may have to worry about rogue ninjas on the loose…with guns…randomly shooting people!
Of course that is not true, but according to a Chicago teen who shot himself in the groin Saturday night, that was his story and he was sticking to it. Initially, the boy told police he was outside on the 3300 block of North Harlem Avenue at 7:20 p.m. when two men dressed in black and wearing Ninja masks jumped out of a black van, and at least one of the men had a semi-automatic handgun and shot him.
After police received the information, they went to the alleged shooting scene but could not find any evidence supporting the teens claims. In addition, the police interviewed potential witnesses and reviewed surveillance video but failed to find any evidence of the alleged ninja attack.
After police returned to the hospital, they confronted the 17 year old with their lack of findings but the boy continued to give conflicting information, Officer John Mirabelli said.
Eventually, the boy, who has gang ties, told police he was driving in a vehicle with several female friends when he was playing with a gun and it discharged in his lap and struck him.
Medical personnel were also able to determine that the shooting was self-inflicted.
For real though, buddy couldn’t have come up with a more believable story? If he is indeed a gang member, I think they would have given him better tips to fool authorities. Then again, there is no rule stating all gang members have street cred. Anywho, he needs a few pinches for this bogus ass story…
