Criminal owes Old Man Winter a big one.

Officers responded to the 2000 block of Woodlawn Avenue for a report of an attempted robbery. The victim said the suspect pushed him into a door. The victim said as he turned to face the suspect, the victim began pulling his gun out of his jacket in self-defense and then slipped on ice and the victim accidentally discharged the pistol into the ground. The suspect ran away. Officers tired to locate the bullet but could not find it.

And the mandatory reminder to keep the finger off the trigger till you have your target.

Good ending nevertheless.
