Conn. gunshot victim eats before going to hospital

Miguel Soto, 25 said he was leaving the deli Tuesday when he heard three gunshots, two of which entered his leg and his groin

The Associated Press

NEW HAVEN, Connecticut — Police say a 25-year-old man who was shot twice after buying a sandwich at a deli went home and ate his lunch before going to the hospital.

Miguel Soto said he was leaving the deli Tuesday when he heard three gunshots. One bullet hit him in the left leg, another in the groin. Police say he went home and ate the sandwich before asking his father to take him to a hospital.

Police did not say whether Soto realized immediately that he had been shot, or if he decided the injuries were not serious enough to require an immediate hospital trip.
