Man Shoots Armadillo; Bullet Ricochets Into Mother-In-Law’s Back
The armadillo is dead and, thankfully, the mother-in-law is alive.
Lee County Sheriff’s deputies tell WALB-TV (http://bit.ly/1FCGUBO ) that 54-year-old Larry McElroy fired his 9 mm pistol at the armadillo Sunday night.
Deputies say the bullet killed the armadillo, but bounced off the animal, hit a fence, traveled through the back door of the mother-in-law’s mobile home and the recliner in which she was sitting, striking her in the back.
McElroy’s 74-year-old mother-in-law, Carol Johnson, suffered injuries described as non-life-threatening. Lee County sheriff’s investigator Bill Smith said she was walking around and talking afterward.
