Police: Man Shot Himself In Genitals During Robbery
Surveillance Tape: Shooting Happened When Man Put Gun In Waistband

POSTED: 8:00 am EST January 15, 2008

KOKOMO, Ind. -- Police said a man accidentally shot himself in the genitals as he robbed a convenience store early Tuesday morning.

Kokomo police said they were called to a Village Pantry store at 100 North Ohio Street at about 4:20 a.m. after a clerk at the store called them.

The female clerk told police that a man came into the store with a semiautomatic handgun and demanded cash and cigarettes before handing her a white cloth bag.

The clerk said that as she retrieved the cigarettes she heard a gunshot and turned to confront the man, who yelled that he had shot himself.

Police said the man grabbed the bag full of cash and fled the store.

In-store surveillance cameras showed that the man, who police identified as Derrick Kosch, 25, of Kokomo, shot himself as he placed the gun into the waistband of his pants, police said. Authorities declined to release the surveillance footage early Tuesday.

Shortly after the robbery, dispatchers got a call from someone in a home in the 1000 block of East North Street about a man who was shot.

When officers arrived, they found Kosch with a gunshot wound to a testicle and leg. He was taken to a hospital for treatment.

Officers said that while at the home they found the bag of money that was taken from the convenience store and clothes seen on the robber in the surveillance tape.

Police said Kosch will be charged with armed robbery and related charges when he emerges from surgery on Tuesday.
