Man who shot himself is going to jail

A Moncton man is going to jail for making a false report to police and weapons charges, according to the Times and Transcript.

33 year old Christopher Lee Edgett told police he was the victim of a drive-by shooting when it fact he had dropped the gun and has shot himself.

The defence lawyer said it was a result of his clients stupidity but the judge gave him 8 months in jail saying if you send police on a wild goose chase it’s going to be taken seriously.
