The following was also reported in the Lincoln Journal Star on Friday. (Nebraska) It is not available at their on-line version for a link, so as a Journalist I will publish my own version here
Lincoln Police Officer Katherine Finnell stated that a citation was issued to 27 year old Lincoln resident Stephen Fitts for discharging a firearm within the city limits. Details remain sketchy, Finnel said that Fitts had been in posession of a 357 caliber revolver that was holstered on the waistband of his pants. Fitts reported to police that, he was sitting on a friends couch and the trigger of the firearm apparently caught on something, possibly his jacket, causing it to fire. Fitts, Police reports state, "Looked at the couch and saw what I thought was a piece of pizza." That's when he realized he had "Blown away a chunk of his own backside."
Fitts was taken to BryanLGH Medical Center West where he was treated for his injury. The bullet went through his left hip and into the couch. No other details were forthcoming concerning the incident
