COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Authorities say a Missouri man who shot himself in the genitals lied to investigators and said someone else shot him.
19-year-old Taylor Joseph Guthrie is charged with a misdemeanor count of making a false report after he was wounded in July at a mobile home park in Prathersville. A warrant has been issued for his arrest.
Guthrie later said he was actually retrieving the 9mm pistol from a car when it went off. The gun had been reported stolen from Memphis, Tennessee.
