A FAILED robbery got a whole lot worse when the thug accidentally shot his 4-5 during the attempted holdup.
According to Chicago Sun Times, Terrion Pouncy (19) attacked employees at a hot dog stand in South Side, Chicago last Tuesday, demanding their wallets. Pouncy allegedly held his gun to the head of a 39-year-old employee, who at that moment had been busy passing a bucket filled with grease over the counter. The employee shouted at his colleague to give Pouncy their wallets and cash from the till.
But as his colleague was passing Pouncy the money, the bucket of grease suddenly slipped and it and the cash went flying!
Assistant Cook County State’s Attorney Erin Antonietti said in the report that it was at this moment that things went badly wrong for Pouncy. Still pointing the gun at the workers, Pouncy bent over to grab the fallen cash. As he was about to flee the scene, he shoved his gun into his waistband … and accidentally pulled the trigger.
Struggling to move, Pouncy was then chased by the angry employees, who wrestled him to the ground. Soon after, Pouncy collapsed.
Cops were called and rushed him to hospital, where it was discovered that his 4-5 had been hit by a bullet.Cops recovered the cash and a .38 calibre pistol.
Pouncy is still in hospital, and is so badly injured he missed his first hearing on Thursday, said the report.
