Police: Man shoots himself in the leg during domestic
Stillwater Police officers responding to a reported domestic at a Greeley Street apartment found a man who apparently shot himself in the leg, according to an incident report.
The wounded man, identified in the report at TR Weyh, was taken to Regions Hospital in St. Paul for treatment.
According to the report, a 25-year-old woman identified as Kirsten Henrickson, locked herself in her apartment bathroom after getting into a physical fight with Weyh. The report adds that Weyh pulled a handgun and “then proceeded to fire the gun twice into his own leg while sitting on a couch.”
Henrickson’s friend, Claire Renner, who came to the scene after getting a call from Henrickson, told officers that Weyh contacted a friend of his to come pick him up and take him home after Weyh shot himself in the leg, the report said.
Renner also told officers that Weyh had aimed the gun at his neck before shooting through a pillow at his leg, the report adds.
When asked by officers why Weyh would want to shoot himself, Jensen told the officers that he believes Weyh shot himself, “just because he was probably upset and on drugs at the time,” according to the report.
Jensen also told officers that he believes the argument began when Weyh refused to share his drugs with his girlfriend, the report said..
According to officers, Henrickson was uncooperative during the investigation and was transported to Regions for evaluation of possible drug and alcohol use.
No arrests were made.
