NORTH VANCOUVER, B.C. – The RCMP warned about the dangers of gunplay Tuesday after a man shot off his finger in a toilet.
Police said they got a call early New Year’s Day after a man was seen bleeding profusely from his hand at an apartment building.
When they arrived, there was no sign of the man, but a large amount of blood was found on an apartment door. In searching the apartment, police said they found a shell casing on the bathroom floor and a large pool of blood in front of the toilet.
“Apparently the male was playing with a handgun while using the bathroom and inadvertently shot his finger off,” the RCMP said in a new release.
The RCMP also warned of the dangers of playing with guns while using the toilet, saying “it was not a good idea.”
