    Cops says man shoots self in leg, makes up carjacking story
    May 11, 2007

    Ferndale - Police say a Ferndale man made up a carjacking story to cover up the fact that he’d shot himself in the leg.
    On Wednesday, Alan Royle, 42, found himself charged with falsely reporting an incident, a misdemeanor, and unlawful possession of marijuana, a violation.
    State police said that on May 5, Royle reported an assault and an attempted carjacking. He was taken to Catskill Regional Medical Center in Harris and treated for a bullet wound in his leg, and there he told police a man tried to steal his car from his driveway, and in the process shot him in the leg.
    Police said Royle had actually shot himself accidentally with a .22-caliber Winchester rifle.
    When they investigated his claims, they also found a small amount of marijuana in his home.
    Royle was released, pending an appearance in Liberty Town Court.

    Trying to figure that out myself, my best guess is maybe he was taking it out of his car and grabbed it by the barrel and something snagged the trigger. That seems to happen a few times every hunting season.
