Weightlifter shot, says dumbbell dropped on bullet
Calif. weightlifter says he accidentally shot himself by dropping a dumbbell on a bullet
By The Associated Press

MODESTO, Calif. (AP) ' A California weightlifter says he accidentally shot himself by dropping a dumbbell on a bullet.

The man was wounded in the shoulder.

He told Modesto police officers he was lifting dumbbells in his home Wednesday night when he dropped one on a .22 caliber bullet. The man's name hasn't been released.



Modesto police investigators say the man's story is suspicious, but not impossible.

Officer Chris Adams tells the Modesto Bee (http://bit.ly/HOfb79 ) that impact on the rim of the bullet could have caused it to fire.

Officers did not find a gun but did find the shell casing.

Neighbors did not see anyone leaving the man's home.
