North Carolina Man Arrested for Accidental Shooting

Desmond Hill

Local news reports

A Havelock man was arrested on Tuesday after what police described as an accidental shooting that sent one person to the hospital.

Police responded to a call of shots fired at a mobile home near Lejeune Boulevard. There, Desmond Hill, 21, of Glen Drive in Havelock, was charged by the Jacksonville Police Department with discharging a firearm within the city limits and resisting, delaying or obstructing a police officer. 

Capt. Patricia Driggers, a spokesperson for the Jacksonville Police Department, officers were called to the mobile home on Tuesday. Investigators believe the shooting was accidental, Driggers said, but added that the case is still under investigation.

The 6 ways to ensure that you get arrested for an accidental shooting:

1. do it in a residential area
2. lie to the police
3. hide evidence
4. have neck tattoos
5. have dred locks
6. be black or Hispanic

Poor Desmond didn't stand a chance.


  1. Usually hiding the gun and claiming someone else did it and then getting caught will do that regardless of race.

    1. Maybe. But usually being high and drunk and having a bunch of pot and money in the house will do it too, but not in the case I posted today in Illinois. Race has nothing to do with it, is that your position?
