    Man Injured at ex-girlfriend's home
    September 5, 2003

    Sparr--A man who allegedly entered his ex-girlfriend's home uninvited
    and got into a confrontation with another man at the residence, was
    subsequently shot in the left abdomen, according to a Sheriff's Office
    report.

    The man, Jake Z. Sims, Jr., 60, 1600 N. E. 36th Ave., reportedly went to
    Jodi D. Weltzien's home, 1501 N. E. 97th St. Road, after 10:30 p.m.
    Wednesday and saw Thomas C. Johnson, 49, 3034 N. E. 120th Street there.
    Authorities say an argument developed between the men. Sims then shoved
    Johnson up against a wall, the report stated.

    Sims, officials say, then charged into Johnson, causing the .22-caliber
    handgun, which was in Johnson's possession, to go off, hitting Sims in
    the abdomen. Weltzien told deputies she dated Sims for about a dozen
    years, but they've been separated for about three years.

    Sims was taken to Munroe Regional Medical Center where a hospital
    spokesman said he was in critical condition. Sheriff's officials say
    they're going to review the case with the State Attorney's office to see
    if charges will be filed.

    How the heck does a .22 just go off? Did the guy feel threatened? Too many loose ends to this story, keep us posted.

    Let's see, suspect breaks into home or forces way into home.

    Suspect sees gun and decides to charge anyway.

    Either suspect is so infatuated that he can't think rationally or he just needs to be Darwined out.

    That'll probably quiet him down a little, although his stay is probably at the tax payers' expense.
