(KMOV.com) – A man in Franklin County said he was shot while committing a federal crime.
The 19-year-old told deputies that he and some of his friends were driving down Highway H when they started smashing into mailboxes.
Upon turning around to drive back into town, they heard what sounded like a firecracker. The man looked down and saw his elbow bleeding from apparent gunfire.
He is scheduled to have surgery Tuesday.
