A man accidentally shot himself in the belly and decided to blame it on a black humanity who didnt exist.
Arthur Palombo, 20, told police that he went to Williamsbridge Oval Park in the Bronx on Wednesday to exchange an old revolver to person he had met a few weeks later, according to the New York Daily News. Palombo reported that the potential buyer, a bald-headed black mortal, refused to pay the $100 asking price and shot him.
After Palombo, who is Hispanic, was taken to the hospital, NYPD searched the ballpark and ascertained his revolver.
Investigators questioned the man again when he was secreted from the hospital on Thursday. Palombo recanted his narrative and are recognizing that his gun set off while it was in his coat pocket.
Cops apprehended Palombo and he was charged with weapons possession and registering a inaccurate report.
He was released Friday on $10,000 bail, according to the citys Department of Correction.
