The Seattle P-I is reporting that David Dietrick, 24, of Burien, accused of firing a pistol on a West Seattle-bound Metro bus, has been charged with reckless endangerment and unlawful gun possession.

“I didn’t mean for the gun to go off,” the P-I quotes him as saying. “Look at the hole in the floor of the bus. I wasn’t even aiming it at nobody.”

The P-I continues:

According to charging documents, David Dietrick was aboard the No. 125 bus trying to unload a cocked pistol in his backpack on May 19 when the gun fired. The 9 mm round ricocheted off the rear door, then hit another passenger in the leg.

It didn’t cause a signficant injury.

King County prosecutors contend Dietrick, 24, had been in a fight outside the McDonald’s restaurant at Third Avenue and Pine Street shortly before the shooting.

    If you ‘Wasn’t Even Aiming It At Nobody’ perhaps you were aiming at somebody. Idiot.

    We can’t take this too lightly. A man who lives in our community carrying around a 9mm. hand gun in a back pack getting in a fight downtown seattle at 3rd & Pine ( Downtown Drug Center) boading a bus headed to our community. He wasn’t “aiming at nobody”.
    Bet this is not his first offense.

    The police report said that a lady was arrested along with Mr. Dietrick, imagin two adults thinking this was the thing to do. He is being held on a failure to appear for sentenceing warrant for armed robbery. I hope they didn’t breed.
