Georgia man shoots armadillo, bullet bounces off critter’s shell, hits shooter’s mother-in-law inside mobile home 100 yards away: Police (VIDEO)
Armored and dangerous!
A Georgia man shot his mother-in-law in a freak accident after a bullet he fired at an armadillo ricocheted off the creature’s back.
Larry McElroy, 54, was outside 74-year-old Carol Johnson’s mobile home in Lee County on Sunday night when he took aim with his 9-mm pistol at the animal, WALB reported.
The critter was killed by the round.
But the projectile bounced back off its armor, hit a fence and traveled 100 yards to fly through the back door of the property, police said.
The Lee County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the bizarre incident.
He recommended McElroy use a shotgun next time.
