Just after 1 a.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 2, an older man was accidentally shot in the thigh in the parking lot of Elmer’s Pub, located at 15027 Ambaum Blvd SW in Burien.

When deputies arrived they found a 66-year old Burien man inside the pub with a gunshot wound to his upper leg.

Apparently the man had been outside smoking with a friend when the topic of guns came up.

He then pulled a gun out of his car and accidentally shot himself.

He was taken to Harborview and is expected to survive.

A trusted source who was there said they didn’t hear a gunshot, and added “you wouldn’t know the victim was shot until he walked in.”

    alcohol and guns are never a good mix if he was drinking witch it kinda makes sense that he was or he did not use the proper handling of a fire arm.
    KEEP YOUR DAM FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER unless your under attack or safely aiming at your target. This guy needs to get his guns and any hunting permits taken away for a year and have to get some firearm’s safety training before getting them back . Unless if it was a error in the gun it self witch also sound unlikely but you never know

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 5 Thumb down 4

      let’s see, what are the the odds that a drinking fool, showing off his gun had a mechanical malfunction (as opposed to a brain melt)…………..yeah, about zero
