Man Seriously Injured In Potato Gun Explosion

Louisville, Kentucky - A man was hospitalized after being seriously injured in a potato gun explosion. Police said they received a report of a shooting where they found 53-year-old John Berthiaume II lying in the street. Berthiaume suffered injuries to his right arm and leg when his homemade potato gun exploded. The victim’s brother, Tony, said it appeared that his brother put too much black powder into the device. “He’s got a chunk of his arm torn up. His butt cheek, his thigh and lower calf on his right side,” Berthiaume’s brother said. “A chunk of meat was hanging off of his arm: you could see to the bone.”  More
