Man Accidentally Shoots Himself With Bullet He Was Using to Make V-Day Necklace

Police in Ontario, Canada say a man accidentally shot himself in the leg with a bullet he was using to make a necklace on Valentine’s Day.

Global News reports the romance-inspired shooting took place in Oshawa on February 14. The victim was reportedly trying to dismantle the bullet with pliers when it discharged, striking him in the leg. He reportedly told police that he intended to use some part of the bullet as part of a necklace.

“If you go do some research on what’s in a bullet, it’s not something you want to make a necklace out of,” police spokesman Dave Selby said. “The reason why we put it out obviously is not in humour, it’s the public education piece here. Ammunition is live, it’s not a toy, and it should be dealt with carefully.”

The man was taken to a nearby hospital, where several bits of the bullet casing were surgically removed from his leg. No charges were filed.
