Robber shoots himself and clerk at same time

ATLANTA - Hotel security cameras show the unidentified robber walk into the hotel office. The man bought a snack out of a vending machine then walked to the counter and pulled a gun on Vrajesh Patel, 19, according to police.

It appears other customers were not aware of the robbery until the gun fired.

When the gun went off, Patel was hit in the stomach, but at virtually the same time, a second bullet from the gun hits the robber in the head, according to detectives.

The surveillance video showed money flying into the air and smoke hovering over the hotel front desk as a customer scrambled for cover. Then Patel manages to climb up to the counter and call 911.

Patel’s family said he’s expected to make a full recovery. “We feel very blessed because he is very lucky. If you see the video, it was a very bad shooting,” said Patel’s brother, who did not want to be identifi

  • Typical single-digit IQ monkey-in-manpants doing what his ilk typically do; piling fuck-up on top of failure, and doing so with typical savage flair and violence.

    It's one of the hallmarks of their rich and vibrant culture, after all.

    • Yes, yes, of course, everyone can see the great deeds that the "afro" does in any country/society he inhabits (as evidenced by this and innumerable other vids on LL).

      Keep up the good work, but keep it below the equator, please. We've got quite enough of you do-gooders up here.

      I watched this a few times, and it seems like the gun malfunctioned, and blew up.

      That's what i call an advanced double tap, the recoil in his limp wristed hand must have caused the barrel to end up underneath his jaw and went of again.

      From WTF! to an instant thigh slapping LOL.

      Im just glad the clerk made it.

  • Very interesting. Might have been an old 38 spcl shooting P ammo, which is only recommended for newer .38 spcl.

    Even with a 357 magnum, not enough kick to be uncontrolled. That is an exploding weapon.

    More probably, bullet from previous dud round (primer only) was in the barrel. Fires one round, pressures send lodged bullet forward into Patel while exploding the barrel or cylinder to send a projectile back at the assailant. It would be cool to do the forensics on this one.

  • the video is too long, i'm sorry. but still the jerk is very talented. there are few people on earth who can shoot himself and his opponent at the same time. he deserves a good funeral. we'll miss him.

  • Let me start off by saying that this was a "double action" revolver for all of you that aren't familiar with this weapon. We know this to be a fact because he was not required to pull the hammer back prior to discharging the weapon. If it were a "single action" weapon, he would have needed to cock the hammer back again in order to discharge the weapon into his own head like a moron, but I digress.

    Ok, now this is just my personal opinion of what we just witnessed. Keep in More..

    • Interesting deduction. lol.

      I don't think homeboy's reflexes were that fast - from the point the first round discharged to the point the second round discharged (if there even was a 2nd round) was probably 1/5 of a second or maybe even less. It was nearly instantaneous. The camera recorded and played in realtime if you note the seconds on the screen. If the first shot was an accident and the guy didn't plan on firing it, I can tell you it's next to impossible that through reflexes, he would b More..

    • You too could be correct but how many times have you seen an inexperienced shooter have the gun rear back and hit them in the face ? I've seen it several times, they usually freak out and drop the weapon and immediately grab there face to check for blood. The only difference here is he shot his self in the head.

    • Well, hopefully somebody posts and update once the the medical examiner completes the autopsy. A complete bullet or secondary fragmentation? Until then, we probably won't know for sure.

  • I hardly ever laugh at anything morbid, however I couldn't help but laugh at this one. Mainly because the robber got instantly owned. Also it is good to know that the victim is alive and going to make a recovery.

  • Here are two absolutes.

    1. If a robbery is committed in Atlanta, it was a black male!

    2. If a robbery is against a hotel clerk, their last name will be Patel!

    LOL!!!
