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.

Jeane Sams, who was visiting a cousin in the complex, had stepped outside to talk on her cell phone when she was struck in the leg by the bullet.

Witnesses helped the woman stop the bleeding until paramedics could rush her to the hospital.

Police say Bruty was dead at the scene. They found the weapon underneath his body.

Neighbors tell the Tampa Bay Times they are shocked.
