Georgia man Aaron Acklan was shot three times at a range in St. Augustine, Florida. Even worse -- the shooter was his brother-in-law. James Duffy apparently thought Acklan was using the bathroom and didn't see him behind the targets.
Acklan was flown to a nearby hospital and treated for non-life threatening wounds.
Store employees came upon the explosive as they were going through a box of materials someone had dropped off. Since Goodwill doesn't track who donates what, they don't know who gave them the grenade.
Fortunately, police were able to dispose of the grenade safely. The store reopened after four hours.
According to the newspaper's eyewitness, "It seemed then to form itself into seven small distinct moons or globes of fire which disappeared for the space of a few seconds. Its reappearance was equally brilliant, at first showing itself like the face of the moon, afterwards in five circular balls, and lastly like several small stars which gradually faded away, leaving the whole atmosphere brilliantly illuminated."
A few days later and about 80 miles to the west, the Chester Chronicle reported on the same thing, adding that, "During the time of it being visible, a faint blue light fell upon the surrounding objects, like that of distant torches."
Paramedics were dispatched to check on a report of a man lying unconscious in a vehicle, and when they arrived, they found a highly intoxicated James Wayne Hubbard in the front seat of the van, naked from the waist down. Hubbard, who'd soiled himself at some point in the night and removed his pants, declined medical attention and ran from the scene after authorities ran the license plates and found that the vehicle had been reported stolen.
Police caught up with Hubbard several hours later. He was wearing a pair of clean shorts that he admitted he'd stolen from a house he'd broken into shortly after running from cops earlier in the day.
