Robber Shoots Self

An armed robbery suspect in Elko became his own victim last
night when he accidentally shot himself in the heel as he was
making his getaway.

Police Chief Mike Smith says officers caught up with 17-year-old
Christopher Gonzales at Northeastern Nevada Regional Hospital
shortly after a liquor store holdup.

After questioning him, they seized cash, clothing and a handgun
they believe was used in both the robbery and the accidental
shooting.
