    Teen shoots self without a gun

    LAKE LUZERNE, N.Y. --A young man shot himself without using a gun.

    Damion M. Mosher, who put bullets in a vise and whacked them with a hammer to empty the brass shell casings, was hit in the abdomen by one of the shots, authorities said.

    Warren County deputies said they were called to Mosher's home in Lake Luzerne on Saturday afternoon after one bullet went about a half-inch into his abdomen. He was treated at Glens Falls Hospital and was released. No charges were filed.

    Mosher, 18, told authorities he was trying to empty the .223-caliber rounds to collect the brass casings for scrap.

    Sheriff Larry Cleveland said about 100 other rounds that Mosher hit had "fizzled," but one was somehow sent with more force. It was unclear if the bullet ricocheted or hit him directly.

    An employee of an Albany scrap metal company told The Post-Star of Glens Falls that the business pays $1.70 a pound for scrap brass shell casings.

    Cleveland said Mosher's shells amounted to just a few pounds.

    Lake Luzerne, at the southeastern edge of the Adirondacks, is 45 miles north of Albany.
