DALLAS — A 19-year-old would-be robber from Fort Worth died after accidentally shooting himself during an early-morning break-in, police said.
The body of Cameron Sands was found early Tuesday morning in the driveway of a home in the suburban Dallas town of Grand Prairie.
Sands kicked in the door of the house and then shot himself in the stomach while trying to pull the gun out of his pants, Grand Prairie police said. Sands then dropped the gun and ran from the home, making it as far as the driveway before he collapsed.
The homeowner was not injured, police said.
"This is the first that I've heard of a robbery suspect killing himself as he is drawing a gun out of his waist band," Grand Prairie police spokesman Lt. John Brimmer said in a story on The Dallas Morning News Web site Wednesday. "It certainly isn't common."
