An Oklahoma 16-year-old boy is in serious condition after he accidentally shot himself in the leg for the second time over the last three months, according to police.
Tulsa police found the teen injured from a single gunshot to his left leg around 3:25 a.m. Monday, as reported by Tulsa World. Officials say the victim was conscious but incoherent and suffered from a large amount of blood loss. A tourniquet was applied to stop the bleeding after police feared the teenager had severed an artery.
The young man almost bled to death but the "quick action" of the responding officers, who applied a tourniquet, likely saved his life.
As it turns out this was not the first time that officers responded to a 911 call from the teen's residence, as three months earlier he had also shot himself in the leg.
I am not exactly sure what this 16 year old has against his leg, but perhaps the NRA ought to consider arming it so that next time it can at least return fire.
