Sponsored by:

Groveland, CA — 49 year old David Lee Kirk of Incense Cedar Trail in Groveland lost his right index finger Tuesday afternoon thanks to an errant shotgun blast.

Around 2:30 Kirk became involved in a dispute with a dirt biker who was on his property. Kirk went into his home, brought out a shotgun and fired off a couple of rounds in the air. As the dirt biker departed, Kirk accidentally dropped the weapon which discharged and shot off his right index finger.

No criminal charges are anticipated for either individual.

Fortunately Kirk is lefthanded.
