BRONX NEWS: 100-year-old Bronx man cuffed after shooting himself in the leg


A 100-year-old Bronx man added arrest to injury Thursday, when he shot himself in the leg, then wound up charged with weapons possession.


Pedro Detres was handling his revolver when the gun went off, sending a bullet into the centenarian gunslinger’s thigh Thursday morning, cops said.


Police learned of the injury at about 10:30 a.m., after responding to a call of an emotionally disturbed person in his second-floor apartment on E. 162nd St. near Sheridan Ave. in Concourse, cops said.


Cops tied a tourniquet around Detres’ leg to stop the bleeding, and medics took him to Lincoln Hospital.
