There’s dumb, there’s really dumb, there’s totally dumb, there’s beyond dumb, and then there’s this:
Deputies have charged an 18-year-old South Carolina woman with the fatal shooting of a male friend who had donned a bulletproof vest and allegedly asked her to “shoot me,” according to local media.
The killing occurred Wednesday in Honea Path, S.C., after 25-year-old Blake Randall Wardell discovered the old vest in a garage where he had been hanging out with friends, WYFF-TV reports.
Anderson County deputy coroner Don McCown said Wardell asked Taylor Ann Kelly to “shoot me,” the TV station reports.
Kelly allegedly fired a small caliber weapon at Wardell, but the bullet went through the edge of the vest and into his heart, McCown said.
What a waste.
