Woman Shot In The Leg From Bullet Used In Suicide

PORT RICHEY, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – A woman standing outside a condo complex was hit in the leg by the bullet a man had just fired to commit suicide, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

Michael Bruty, 28, was arguing with his girlfriend and threatened to kill himself. The woman begged him not to do it, but he put the gun to his head and pulled the trigger, according to the police report.
