    CHERRYVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Authorities said an unsuccessful robber shot himself in the foot . . . by shooting himself in the foot. Police said Kelvin Ethelbert Roberts, 28, botched his plans to rob a Cherryville convenience store by accidentally shooting his right foot.

    According to an arrest warrant, Roberts dropped a .45-caliber handgun in front of Gasland USA on Sunday. The gun hit the ground and went off, a bullet striking Roberts in the foot.

    Roberts faces several charges that include attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon and possession of a weapon of mass destruction. Police said the handgun had been altered to fire .410 shotgun shells.

    Authorities said Roberts was in illegal possession of the gun because of his felony cocaine possession conviction in 2002 in Chautauqua County, New York.

    Cherryville is about 40 miles northwest of Charlotte.

    No pic of shotpistol?

    This would only be a weapon of mass destruction to pigeons.

    makes more sense.
    .410 slug would be pretty snappy though.
