Convicted Felon Accidentally Shoots Himself After Dropping Handgun

HUDSON – 35-Year-Old Jason Trigger didn’t have to pull the “trigger” yesterday, when he accidentally shot himself inside a Dollar General Store on US-19. That’s what officials say happened around 3:30 p.m., when Trigger walked into the store with a .22 cal. handgun in his waistband. Upon entering the store, the gun fell out of his waistband and landed on the floor, causing it to discharge. Trigger was struck in the right ankle and fled the scene. Trigger was located a short time later, after he checked himself in at Bayonet Point Hospital for treatment. Officials say a background check revealed that Trigger is a convicted felon; subsequently, Trigger was charged with being in possession of a firearm.

Trigger has numerous prior arrests, include grand theft, drug possession, burglary, and arson.

Trigger’s exact intentions for entering the store with a loaded handgun are unknown at this time.

  • another felon in possession of a handgun. how common. the penalties must be really discouraging for this to be a common crime.. insert sarcasm… and does any one realize how hard it is for a firearm to discharge by itself in this situation even being probably rim fire ammo considering its most likely a 22lr. contrary to hollywood unless its very very old piece.. most modern firearms require a trigger pull and by most we are talking ive only seen a few specialty firearms that did not use things like a transfer bar/block I would bet my months pay checks he was removing it and there was a round chambered weapon charged. shot himself and dropped the firearm.. which brings up the 1 dollar question.. why take out a handgun in a store? hmmm tough one there..

  • No insurance. I guess we pick up the tab. Me or my kid even think of getting sick it cost thousands. This looser shoots himself and gets it for free. Maybe he was robbing the place to pay for his last ER visit.

  • I agree, Sassy, but still I have to lmao. Crime definitely didn’t pay for this idiot. As far as hospital bill goes- any monies he has in canteen account should go to that bill till he pays it off.

  • As humorous as this is it could have turned out much worse. He may have intended to rob the store, and if that had happened, someone may have been hurt. I call this divine intervention.
