Limping man surprised to discover gunshot wound
PEORIA, Ill. — Tracy Durham remembers hearing the pop. But the gunshot wound the Illinois man discovered after a neighbor asked about his limp? That was a surprise.
The 48-year-old Durham told police he thinks he was shot by a friend during a party late Sunday at his home.
Police say Durham recalled calling the friend’s girlfriend ugly. The Peoria man then heard a pop as he took a drink from a bottle of whiskey. But police say he felt no pain.
Durham told officers he went to sleep around 3 a.m. Monday and discovered the wound about four hours later.
Police questioned Durham while he was being treated at a local hospital. He declined to identify the man he suspects shot him.
