    Woman Accidentally Shoots Herself After Hunting Trip

    Police in Vermont say a woman returning home from a hunting trip accidentally shot herself during the opening weekend of rifle season.

    Police said 46-year-old Linda Alexander of Bellows Falls, Vermont, was removing her hunting rifle from her car in Danbury on Sunday when it discharged.

    Police said that when she grasped the muzzle end of the rifle, which was sitting on the back seat of her truck, the trigger guard became entangled in some clothing and caused the gun to discharge.

    Alexander was struck in the abdomen. She was taken to a hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.
