Man Wakes to Discovers He Shot Himself in His Sleep

The Concord Police Department received a call at 12:30 a.m. on July 30, said Tim O’Malley, public information officer for the department. Police would not release the man’s name; they are not planning on filing charges, and believe it was an accident.

He was taken to the hospital with serious injuries, although O’Malley (pictured above) said they are not life-threatening. Because police would not release his name, it was not possible to obtain information about the status of his injuries.

THE SAME THING HAPPENED TO A MAN IN COLORADO. READ ABOUT IT HERE.

The man was alone in the house when the incident happened. O’Malley said police notified the man’s wife, who was at work at the time, and the wife said he was probably sleepwalking.

O’Malley did not know where the gun had been kept.

Sleepwalking, also known as somnambulism, is a sleep disorder belonging to the parasomnia family. Sleepwalkers arise from the sleep stage in a state of low consciousness and perform activities that are usually performed during a state of full consciousness. These activities can be as benign as sitting up in bed, walking to the bathroom, and cleaning, or as hazardous as cooking, driving, violent gestures, grabbing at hallucinated objects, or even homicide.

That's a scary way to wake up.
